I never thought of checking in GCC and bash or gnumake with a project.
I allways assumed the build tools as separated - I may use netbeans or
eclipse which may have ant integrated.

I'm not sure I can get used with the idea of checking in the build tools
as a workaround for their incompatiblities. It is indeed more and more a
requirement for ant, and I'll have to do it ( it seems many projects have
a ant.jar checked in ). But that _bad_, and as ant is integrated with IDEs
it'll get worse.
