I'm not sure if I understand all your arguments for this, but I can tell you
that moving from make to Ant was a huge step forward for the ArgoUML project (to
which I'm contributing a bit). I don't think anyone wants to go back to the old
make tools.

If you need libs like GTK, I'd rather like to see a distribution with automatic
dependency checking, like a rpm file (I'm using RedHat Linux) or so.

I guess jakarta-ant is the answer to this problem...
I thought someone is already working on a build.xml file?
