Maven is not a 'better tool' than make. It's deeply unhelpful 'web
age' craziness that is handy for developers, but antithical to
security, consistency and repeatable builds (the sort of things that
distro builders worry about, for good reasons). Maven makes ant look
good. Building with 'whatever crap I got off the internet today' is
not a good way to go IHMO, and so far as I can tell, that's exactly
what maven does, at least by default.
