As Pablo Duboue already mentioned in a separate mail (which was not
CC'ed to the jetty-user list), jetty-plus is enabled in Debian (version
>= 6.1.24-3). Currently both Debian and Ubuntu are currently scheduled
to ship 6.1.24-5 with their next stable release (called Squeeze and
Maverick Meerkat respectively).
I looked the changes and it looks like the reason was that we had not
packaged geronimo-jta-1.0.1b-spec at the time. This means you cannot
enabled it in the version you have (because it is not built/shipped in
that version) unless you rebuilt it from source.
The actual change required in jetty (which also enables
jetty-annotations) can be acquired by checking out the jetty packaging
from svn.debian.org and running the command listed in  in the
newly downloaded directory.
You can file a bug in Ubuntu (against jetty) for getting this change
backported to Karmic (9.10) or/and Lucid (10.04). I cannot promise you
they will do it though. Also, they will not attempt to enable
jetty-annotations unless you explicitly request that as well - the
Stable Release Team will reject "unrelated" changes to a package.
 That is to say, Debian did not have the package at that time. Ubuntu
takes most of its Java packages from Debian without changes; this makes
a lot of things easier for us in both distributions in our development
Disclaimer: geronimo-jta-1.0.1b-spec has been changed when it was
uploaded to Debian. I do not know if these changes affects whether
jetty-plus can be built.
 svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-java/trunk/jetty
 svn diff -r12295:12553
The actual revision for this change is r12553.
