Let's not start splitting hairs. What it will look like is something
close to

<transform executable="gcc" targetdir="build/C">
  <arg value="-c" />
  <srcfile />
  <arg value="-o" />
  <targetfile />

  <fileset dir="src/C" />
  <mapper type="glob" from="*.c" to="*.o" />

which is quite general and does wildcard matching, IMHO. It can be
used for other things as well, like

<transform executable="jade" targetdir="doc/docbook">
  <arg line="-t rtf -d mystylesheet.dsl" />
  <srcfile />

  <fileset dir="doc/docbook" />
  <mapper type="glob" from="*.sgml" to="*.rtf" />

and there might even be a mapper type="regexp" ...
