We have a compact build process that builds the ACE, ACEXML, and
ACEXML_Parser libraries as well as a subset of TAO. The build supports
Linux, Windows VC 7.1 or 8.0, Solaris, and VxWorks 5.5.1. It uses the
native tool compiler and linker on all platforms. Windows does require
using Cygwin for a compatible shell and other support commands.
on a proposal we had also done a build for LynxOS. Build process is in
four files with leaf template files located in source code
