If it were up to _me_, I'd move to a cmake build system, with clear & 
completely documented params in config files.

Since that's not likely going to happen any time soon, if at all, to 
answer your question ... TBH, I don't really mind one way or the other.

Any working build process is frankly fine with me ... as long as it's 
consistently & thoroughly documented, and, if followed, doesn't generate 
K's of warnings/errors.

Which sounds like it will/should go away in 1.1.0, as the use of 'make 
depend' is going away?
