Adding a configuration option to the build system to make libxmlj
optional is on my to-do list.

I know, this should really be dynamic.

As far as I am aware, there isn't one (in Java). It's on the roadmap for
GNU JAXP - I've recently introduced an XPath engine which is a critical
component - but it is a nontrivial amount of work and may take some
time. Volunteers would be welcome, of course!

I don't know, you'd have to ask address@hidden

In ClasspathX this is not required, but GNU JAXP will probably become
part of the Classpath project which does require copyright assignment.
