Do you need a different package or a target in debian/rules?

Are there any other problems than the tex4ht.jar? I would actually
prefer to ship texlive-binaries without the need to rebuild the
jar, but that is a requirement.

If a debian/rules target is not enough, I only see the way to
create an additional packages
that only contains the .jar file (and maybe others in future).

Another idea - but I am not sure whether this is possible - would be
to move the jar file into texlive-plain-generic where all the other
tex4ht files are. But that would interfere with the arch=all status
of texlive-plain-generic I guess.

Grateful for any ideas, proposals, advice!
