So, JenkisCI is using a fork (jenkins-htmlunit-core-js) of the fork
(htmlunit-core-js [1])
of Rhino package... JenkisCI upstream seems a love code (and effort...)

/with my rhino package maintainer hat/
Rhino is - now - an active project again (at least, they made a new
release on 2011-06-03 [2]).
You should try to convince JenkisCI team to merge back its changes [3]
(and htmlunit changes [4]) back into Rhino
