I have finished building on Fedora 16 64 bits, and fixing some issues.
I started building on WinXP (a VM, so it takes 5 hrs).

I'm not sure if the gnumake4 integration should be moved to a feature
branch. It is highly probable that it won't introduce any regression on
the core functionality, as most changes are made to Makefiles, and in
the cases where the source code was, it only had to do with fixing the
exported symbols, among other little changes; there are no core new 
features, it is only the build system.

IMO everybody will benefit from its integration in the trunk, so I'd
vote for integrating this into trunk.
Of course, it is highly probable that our builds will brake, but it can 
be fixed soon, while people is building.

On the other hand, having this in a feature branch will mean more work
with merging the trunk changesets (I already had to do this with the
cppunit removal, which by the way would have been more simple and clean 
with the gnumake4 changes).

What do you guys think?
