Personally, I don't like Ant. It's not *free* software either.

There's not much you can do with Ant that can't be done with Make
(given a little thought).

Ant is also very Java centric, Classpath has a lot of C (and C++ if we
include the GCJ stuff). Make is perfect for those languages.

Brian, would you like to check out the Paperclips and Classpathx make
files? They use the the @filelist convieniance to facilitate better
make control over java projects.
