We're still working up to a Makefile.  This libc++abi is still very much in the primitive stages.  It is not ready for prime time on /any/ platform right now.  It is simply a light at the end of the tunnel (we hope it isn't a train :-)).  More seriously, this library is under active development by myself and others.  We believe a complete GPL-free stack is a quite reasonable future goal.  But we are not there today.
