I want to control the set of dependencies independently from
what the operating system provides.
I want gdb traces into dependencies with debug symbols.
I want to type 'make', not all the crazy commands that the Makefile automates.
I was maintaining this Makefile outside of our repository for a long time.
Some years ago Hyrum suggested that I move it into our repo in case
it is useful to someone. If you're not happy with that I can move it elsewhere.

I'm quite happy that I have reproducible builds on OpenBSD and if necessary
other *nix-like systems with full control and automation.
If Ben invents something similar that's great.
I believe that diversity in the buildfarm doesn't hurt.
