The splitter project contains the jar files you need. I've not got 
around to including them directly into the mkgmap project as they are
required to build it (the files that use it can be excluded and it will
still work).

The jar files you need are protobuf.jar and osmpbf.jar which are
located in the lib directory of the splitter project.

Yes it will be fine if you are familiar with it. I don't use it myself, 
so I don't know how you configure the library jar files.
