Hi Gonzalo,

I updated my pull request - I had to cancel the original request
through and replace it with a request from a new branch.

Maven will include the library in the JAR file if it exists in its
build directory (src/.libs). If it doesn't exist, Maven will not
include it and not even complain ;-) It the native library is included
in the JAR file, it will be used, otherwise the java.library.path will
be used.
