go over to, get the <cc> stuff from SCM and then start
playing. It should go into Ant proper in the 1.6 timeframe.

I suspect that autoconf will always have the edge on complex stuff, as it
probes the gcc compiler to see what it can and cannot do. <cc> doesnt try
anything like that, yet.

There is also a project on sforge, JNI++ I think, to make JNI coding easier.
Starts off in ant, and generates the makefile...maybe a future build will
generate a new build file instead.
