There was a build system in place, for building debian packages, but one of the engineers
at MetaCarta objected to including the 
existing debian package structure, other than the makefiles and control files.  It should
be possible to reconstruct the former 
debian packaging, if that was desired, with some effort.  Also, it was ruled that we could
not legally include some things that 
were necessary for a build to complete, such as SharePoint wsdls.  Finally, there were required
upstream changes to certain 
apache packages (libcommons-httpclient and xerces2-java) which we could do nothing else for
except grant the appropriate diff files.

So, we effectively need to put together a build environment as job one, within Apache.
