The one issue I have with a non ant based build system is that it makes
it difficult to build the driver on a windows machine.

Currently I can build the driver on windows without using cygwin

What problems does ant present?

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.
