I put up the latest Makefile version, and updated the build page for it.

Note that this version really requires you to have a modern system; for
example I don't think you'll be able to use it with any version of
Ubuntu before 9.10.  Possibly with 9.04, but definitely not anything
earlier.  This is because Evo now relies on a new libxml2, and SO MANY
things link with that: if you rebuild libxml2 for the local Evo install
then a huge number of other standard libraries Evo links with also have
to be rebuilt otherwise Badness Happens.

I started down the path of adding entries in the Makefile for all of
them but I got tired and gave up.  Who knows, maybe I was almost there;
if this is really something you want I'm happy to describe how you can
keep going and get everything built that you need.


I should also mention that this makefile pulls and builds against the
very latest openchange libraries from the Samba SVN repository.  That
has caused issues in the past although the Evo team has been great about
fixing them.  Just FYI.
