You missed the question. the question is what is the best way to include 
dependencies that are not built with maven. and don't tell me I don't 
need that.

Possible answers, don't know, can't, download it locally, etc...

What is the recommended way / best practice for maven? if you don't know 
I can IRC the maven guys directly as I have done previously.
