Subject RE: Ant for non-java development+addition

Whether Ant is a "reasonable" solution for non-Java code is not really 
possible to answer in a vacuum.

At IBM, we build WebSphere Application Server for both zOS, os400 and 
distributed platforms (Linux, Windows, AIX, etc.) using Ant plus our 
custom extensions, including the native (i.e. C) code portions. This is 
reasonable for us because we're already using Ant to build all of the Java 

It's certainly possible to use Ant to build C code. Reasonable is an 
exercise left to the reader.
