Recommended way to depend on eclipse jars without RCP?

Hi folks

I'm working on a personal project that requires the use of the eclipse java parser in order to create an abstract syntax tree (AST).

However, the project is intended as a library not a client application and I don't want to use the eclipse RCP as it's much more than I need (I don't want a SWT UI or to use OSGi). 

Currently, I've simply pulled some jars out of my copy of eclipse. However, I'd like to know if there's a recommended way to include eclipse jars in other projects other than simply depending on the whole RCP.

Any thoughts? Comments?

PS FWIW Here's the jars I'm using at the moment:
org.eclipse.core.contenttype_3.4.1.R35x_v[masked]-0451.jar
org.eclipse.core.jobs_3.4.100.v[masked]-1800.jar
org.eclipse.core.resources_3.5.1.R35x_v[masked]-0451.jar
org.eclipse.core.runtime_3.5.0.v20090525.jar
org.eclipse.equinox.common_3.5.1.R35x_v[masked]-1100.jar
org.eclipse.equinox.preferences_3.2.300.v[masked]-1800.jar
org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.5.2.v_981_R35x.jar
org.eclipse.osgi_3.5.1.R35x_v20090827.jar
