I've used this Makefile (even on Windows) and it works fine.  In fact 
the default settings in it (for CC, etc.) are fine for a BeOS build.  
Of course since we are supporting multiple build environments, we may 
want to use autoconf to really make it easy for people to build this.

Actually on that note, I have no problem at all with using a simple 
configure script to set up the GCC-PATH, etc for the main OpenBeOS 
build.  I say this because I'm not sure if that Jam change is the best 
way to do this.  From what I've read, using autoconf isn't really that 
much against the "Jam philosophy".  So I say we do it if we need to.
