I just packaged bouncycastle because the version in the openSUSE's
JPackage repos is too old... and, like with everything else, I just
took the Fedora package and modified it the minimum to make it work on
They also bundle the binary, optionally... not sure about the difference.

%if %with signed
%if %without jdk6
%{__install} -p -m 644 %{SOURCE1}
%{__install} -p -m 644 %{SOURCE2}
