Under Windoze make is sloooowwwwwww....  (and configure scripts are
deathly slow)  Under Linux/*BSD/Solaris, it is damn fast.  The only
problem is Makefiles which compiles each .java files using javac
individually. A well-written Makefile will also compile everything in
one go (like Ant), along with Jikes this will finish before the JVM has
started on most platforms, IMHO.

(that is why I was thinking about writing an Ant xml to Makefile
