The use of Ant originally seemed attractive because it would solve the
detection of the jdk version, the portable invocation of the compiler, and
the dependency generation.  However, I must currently consider this
experiment a failure, because for each problem Ant solves it introduces a
load of worse problems into the system.  Thus, if we can agree to work out
a configure/make-based system for the next release I would be very much
for it.
