  I think in the end my opinion is probably not very important as I'm
not a Java head, but I'm still left wondering !

I believe that ant is more "typical" to java build then the autobuild tooling. In addition, with the removal of the c code.. much of the makefile magic from autobuild is no longer needed. I am happy to discuss moving it back to autobuild if this is a big issue.

  Well ... I should not be the one giving the direction here, I guess
Java people are far more used to build with ant than auto* . This can
probably provide portability to Windows for free too (assuming we
can interface with mingw build, which would be nice to test and fix
if needed at some point).
  Let's say I'm surprized but in retrospect this is normal :-)

I will take this to mean "I hate ant, but if it make the java folks happy.. ok.. since I dont have to maintian it". Is that fair?
