The current makefile does that for ease of development more than anything,
it's much easier to construct a list of changed java files and then batch
compile them than run the compiler for every file.

I'd like to have on makefile standard across all the projects. I have setup
the simple Makefile for most of the projects but I would like to see it
standardised as per the GNU make standards (ie: put in all the stuff you
mentioned is missing).

If that requires automake so be it... I'd very much like to see your tar...
why not check it in to crypto (perhaps with a temporary name) and let me see
