This looks great, but evaluating the fact that right now we have three
platforms to build C and C++ files on.  The end result has over 80 dll's and
exe's with dependencies and several combinations of platform specific issues
going on.  It will take me more analysis and evaluation to determine if this
creates a big enough value add.  The size and complexity of what exists
today is the monster challenge at hand.  If anyone out there has tackled
anything similar on one platform, please advise.  This could be a huge
undertaking but very intriguing to believe that there could be a
cross-platform solution.

It is pretty slick. I have a cross-platform JNI lib build working with it,
one build file to go javac-javah-<cc>-junit
