[jcifs] How to distribute

In accordance with the LGPL you are supposed to provide a source
package with whatever modifications and any additional tools necessary
for someone to actually build and link with the modified library. This
basically means you would provide a link to a website or FTP area to a
package like jcifs-krb5-1.2.9.zip or something like that.

If the changes are interesting / good I would be happy to host the package
for you in which case you would simply provide a link to our website in
in your documentation somewhere.

But the first step would be to simply send me the package so I can see what
we're really talking about.
