Obviously it's not as strong as one might think, since Wordpress manages
to embed tinymce in its packages.

Waitaminnit... what do you mean build???  jquery.min.js, the file in
question, is JavaScript.  One simply includes the javascript source in
RoundCube, as it is provided.  It's not an applet.  There is no
"building", there are no "sources" or "binaries".  It is just plain
JavaScript.  It's a text file.
