   Yes, I'm sure I could do better, if I had access to a Mac OS X
system to do the testing.    I guess I need to learn how to add things
to the `all' target.   

   Another complication for this application, is that I need to
compile the Java code first, then generate the JNI header files before
compiling C++ source in the `jni' directory.  On standard UNIX
platforms, I do this by the ordering of directories in the top level's SUBDIR macro and adding the rules in jni/
that are needed.

   So on a Mac OS X platform, I would want effiectively the

If my configure could create a Makefile that did that, I would be in.
But this is a bit beyond my expertise with autoconf/automake.  And I
never expected that there were Mac OS X users who wanted to build my
project. But I have customers, and I've been able to accomodate them,
thanks to autoconf/autmake, without breakig things for standard


   For Windows users, I use my am2msdev tool to read
files and generate  MS Visual Studio project files.   I also manually
create a MSconfig.h file corresponding to what configure would
generate for the defficiencies in the VC++ compiler.   I'm assuming
that if someone has choosen MS Visual Studio as their development
enviroment, they don't have the smarts to have installed cygwin with
