build.sh and ant is the same.

I currently use 'make all' on Linux, but 'ant' works as well.

'make all' works in every directory where a Makefile is,
compiling only the directory tree below the current directory.

I use it when hacking in one directory to compile locally only.

Makefiles check the dependency, so they should not recompile if not
