I'm not sure your reasons for using unix make file
system to compile your JODE, but if the reason is not
because of platform specific issues, then I ask you to
consider using Ant...

http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/index.html

Its a nice java and xml based make file system. It
would mean, no more need for developers of other
platforms to install or have to use unix tools to
compile JODE.

    I haven't looked closely enough at Ant to judge if it has
    all the features I need. I admit that the current scheme
    to use configure to convert .java.in files is ugly. The
    next big update will at least only contain plain .java
    files configured for jdk-1.2 and above.

    I currently use autoconfigure to distinguish between
    jdk-1.1 and jdk-1.2, to determine in which package the
    collection classes and swing resides, and to patch the
    import statements. If this is all easy to do with Ant I
    will consider changing to it.

    In the last weeks I have got ant-infected and the latest
    CVS version is completely based on ant instead of make. I
    hope to make a release soon, but there are still some
    show-stoppers in the obfuscator.
