I haven't seen the code yet, but does this mean there is no build
system in place at all?

Indeed. And while I don't want (and couldn't really care less) to
start a ant/maven/buildr/whatever flame fest, I think it might be
useful to rely on the multi-module directory layout provided by maven
(again, regardless of the build tool) as this is somewhat a friendly
solution to newcomers who will feel a bit more at home when browsing
the source code.
