I can't your point or the joke, please enlighten me ;-)

make is AFAIK the most common build program, but that doesn't mean 
that the tool is ideal everywhere. Progress is possible you know, evolutionary
or revolutionary. GNU Make has been evolutionary, Ant is revolutionary.  

configure management is certainly a lot more than configure. I would 
argue that CVS is the most important configuration management tool, but the
issue is of course broader.

But anyway this off topic, what need to have is a build process that works 
nicely and I think including the ant binaries(around 500k) would be the
best solution here.
