At the present, we are trying to get the CVS HEAD to the point that we 
can retire 0.9.7.  If you have any choice in the matter, I would 
strongly recommend using the CVS HEAD since you would be able to 
contribute to the rest of the community as we try to get the CVS HEAD 
ready for an 0.9.8 release.  The current CVS has substantial 
modifications so experiences with 0.9.7 are not much help.

The autoconf-based build is broken for Debian and BSD systems.  There 
has been discussions on the list but nobody has stepped up to volunteer 
to revamp it and I'm a novice with regard to it.   I've logged a bug 
(http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOGCXX-43) on this and added this 
as a blocker for the 0.9.8 release.  It will have to be done before an 
0.9.8 release, but if I'm not going to take it on until I've run out of 
other tasks that need attention and then I would likely beg one another 
group for help.

The Ant based build does work with Visual C++, Borland C++ on Windows 
and with gcc on Linux and Mac OS/X.  I've attempted to set up FreeBSD 
on Virtual PC to test the Ant build on that platform, but haven't seen 
it through to completion.

The Ant build requires Ant 1. 6.1 or later and the CVS HEAD versions of 
ant-contrib and cpptasks (http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net) and a 
Java VM.  If you have a network connection, the initial ant build will 
download Apache Portable Runtime modules from an mirror and place it in 
the lib directory or you can also manually place apr-1.1.0.tar.gz, 
apr-util-1.1.0.tar.gz and apr-iconv-1.0.1.tar.gz in that directory or 
specify the location of installed versions.

I have MinGW as the next Windows compiler to get working with the Ant 
build.  I haven't tested it yet.
