Actually you can use <systemPath> with maven-debian-helper, it's just
the package generator mh_make that doesn't support it. To deal with such
a dependency you have to:
1. ignore it during the mh_make process
2. re-enable it by editing the generated debian/maven.ignoreRules file
3. patch the pom to set the <systempath>

However this is really a last resort solution, it's preferable to modify
the package and install the Maven artifacts.
