For some time the inclusion of the software Scilab  in our repos has been
barred by various dependencies, which were being resolved with time. Currently,
the biggest reason we do not have this software in our repos is that it relies
in a software called JOGL .
The big question here is that JOGL, in his turn, depends on other software
called Gluegen  and, more specifically, it depends on the **source tree** of
Gluegen, as explained in the instructions for build :
"Step 5 - Check out the GlueGen source tree:
JOGL GlueGen relies on the project to autogenerate most of the Java and JNI
code for the OpenGL interface. The JOGL / and gluegen / workspaces must be
side-by-side in order for JOGL to build properly. "
You need to figure out why jogl needs gluegen and what the ramification is
for the final package in order to really get this discussion going. The
closer we can make this to a static library issue, the easier time you'll
have justifying an exception. The closer it is to a bundled library, the
less likely an exception is.
