It should be possible to use top_srcdir for this, rather than defining a new
srcdir symbol. I agree with your change... checking in now (with some other
stuff I'm checking in).

Yup, just one.

They're history in a just a few moments :-)

Exactly. We've got all the info in build.conf.

Just some tweaks to gen-make.py. I can do that in a moment.

A good chunk of us agreed that we wanted to see a new system like this. Once
you have agreement on the end goal, then it is a matter of what an
*individual* chooses to do. This is, after all, a volunteer effort :-)

Yes, I'm sure that Karl would prefer that I worked on something else, but
this has been a good breather for me right now.
