Dear Maintainer,

In Ubuntu, flute was FTBFS, and I've been looking into it.  Flute would build 
but not in a pbuilder instance.

The problem was that it was not finding sac.jar in the classpath.

If I set includeantruntime="false" on the <javac> of the compile target, I
could also reproduce locally.  Seems that the ant run time was providing the
classpaths necessary to find sac.jar, but it wasn't for some reason in a chroot.

Since includeantruntime="false" is the recommended way to achieve reliable
builds, it seems like a genuine bug that the build fails with it even though 
Debian doesn't seem to be hitting this issue.

Looking further, I discovered that if I used ivy to resolve the dependencies,
it would work because ivy would put sac.jar in ./lib (which is the default
${lib.dir} value).

So I tried the attached patch to define lib.dir manually to /usr/share/java
and that worked.

Thanks for considering the patch, which would let us get back in sync.
