update diff (without moving yet the directory)
The ASF retired Jakarta on 2011 and now bcel is part of Apache Commons.
- Update to the latest version.
- Change the prefix from jakarta- to apache-.
This should involve renaming also the directory.
What is the purpose of maintaining this port at all? 99% of all users will request it from Maven Central anyway.

Maven causes problems when building things in the cluster and packaging them.
OTOH, nothing depends on this ports so there is little interest in maintaining it.
In any case since we carry it, I'd rather prefer we carry a recent version rather than the old one.

I did not mean to build it with Maven, but other consumers will reference BCEL through MAven Central. No one will manually handle the JAR.
If no other port depends on it, don't put anymore effort into it, deprecate and remove by the end of the year.

The decision to deprecate it is not mine to make: java@ is the maintainer. If the maintainer wants to deprecate it, I do request it is updated first to have an updated record in case it needs to be resurrected at a later time.
