There is another C task in jakarta-tomcat-connectors, it's used to build
the native  code for tomcat. Suports libtool, msvc, netware, plain gcc.
Also supports gcj ( with few workarounds it can natively build ant,
tomcat, crimson - but not everything works very well ).

We're still testing it on the various platforms tomcat/apache is used, but
so far things seems to work pretty well.

One limitation is that it can't generate exe ( since all we need is
.so/dll/nlm files ). Dependencies are a bit 'rough' ( i.e. if any .h file
changes, everything is recompiled ).

Of course, it would be great to integrate/merge the tasks.
