Yes, that would be a great place for that.  If you don't mind, it would be 
good if you could include contact information for you in case people have

We have no intention to change the build system.  What we have now is 
based on autotools and has been working pretty well on most platforms, 
including Windows via Cygwin or MSys.  The Ipopt configure and build 
system is also aligned with the rest of COIN; making any change here has 
mayor painful consequences ;-)
