Thanks for the patch !
While it is a good example, it would break people using Visual Studio, in 
particular with the link line, -ljvm. On the other hand, the JDK variable 
idea I should try to incorporate, on all platforms.

Like I said yesterday, a complete setuptools-based solution for PyLucene 
would be more than welcome and work better on Windows. Until someone writes 
it, we're all stuck with the Makefile. Any other solution that only 
helps/works on Windows or makes Python users cringe (ant), and thus 
duplicates maintenance efforts is not so useful :)
