I'll also point out (the anteater in me comes out?) that this could be
rephrased as:
  "something test" tests all ports
  "something tar" creates a release containing all ports.  In some
cases, that might mean "build", in some cases, that might not.
  the doc tree includes documentation for all ports.

ant is ok for Java, and make/autoconf is good for C, and I bet
something else is good for OCaml.  ant is currently as good as
anything to stitch these all together, but <when/> <you're/>
<writing/> <shell/> <scripts/> <in/> <ant/> it can get a bit
so I don't think it's a hard-and-fast goal that ant is the thing that
brings the different ports together.
