Whoah.  So there's no source code?  Presumably your package is going
in non-free then?  The jar file distributed by upstream contains GPL
code (GNU getopt) without source, so it probably isn't distributable
even in non-free.

However, according to the ppower4 web site:

     The post processing software is written in Java and it is free
     (refer to the GNU general public license).

You might want to ask the author for the source since it's apparently GPLed.
