#1750: Java JDBC build issues

Comment(by chodgson):

 This has actually been broken since at lest February. I suspect this may
 have been when some changes were made to the Java build process, and
 Hudson never got updated to handle them.

 There are actually a few problems here:
 - Makefile calls ant which uses maven - why do we have ant in the middle?
 - ant target for building javadocs doesn't work
 - there is a version number in the pom.xml which is improperly defined
 using variables, and it is not the right version number.

 Possible Solutions:
 - can we get rid of ant and do a pure maven build for the jdbc jar?
 - can we use autoconf to make a pom.xml from a pom.xml.in, macro-ing in
 the version number?

 Would really like to avoid having the version number sitting in another
 file. Another alternative is that we don't tie the jdbc version number to
 the postgis version number, as I suspect that the JDBC isn't updated
 nearly as often as the rest of the code. But that is actually more work
 because then we need to make sure the version number for the jdbc IS
 updated when the JDBC code is, and update the links on the website as
