I had a Java library that used other packages under different licenses.
I used MIT license for my code and just kept the original licenses for
3rd party code.
I had a licenses folder in the distribution directory structure and put
there the several licenses with filenames like jakarta1.0.2.license,
bcel.license, etc.

I agree that's not the most user friendly solution (for the library
user it is easier to deal with one license then several) but kept
things simple, well, for me at least. ;)

Best regards,
