Does a PDE feature-built require bundles that need to be built?

I'm using a headless feature built to create a zip artifact that can be
used to add a feature-based plugin set to a p2 repository. Adding the
result of such a feature built to a p2 repo is no problem, but I have
changed our build process so that all bundles referenced in the feature
are separately built and I only want to create a zip that contains an
"embracing" feature and these bundles with the proper version numbers
(which are 0.0.0 in the "raw" feature.xml). I thought I could do that
with a headless pde feature build with simply an empty plugins folder,
but I'm always getting an error:

Buildfile: /some_path/rcp-build\target\features\my.feature\build.xml
does not exist

The build file mentioned here is the one that would be automatically
created by the PDE build *after* the successful build of the manually


and this correctly happens, if I would add the bundle sources in the
plugins folder. But - as described above - now I'm having already
created my bundle jars and don't want to build them again. I simple
provide them in the baseLocation where all binary build dependencies are

I thought it would help to copy the already build bundle.jars into the
plugins folder of the pde build instead, but this does not change the
error quality.

Is this a fundamental limitation of the PDE build? Or is there some way
to realize this approach? I'm wondering, because the corresponding
PDE-product-build works well without any bundles to be built.

Thanks and Greetings from Bremen,
