I don't mind either way really, but I don't see why the makefile should
need to be so complex. One option is also since Postgresql uses configure
to build, we can use configure to help us detect whatever we need to 
if --with-java is turned on and set suitable options/paths etc in the makefile.
That said I haven't really looked at the current build process for the driver.
