We have no control over the build tool. Additonally my use case does not
involve template files. I've changed files and links of the official project
to be able to compile it on my notebook. This changes should not be commited
to because they would break everything for other users.

One reason why the official project will not change its policy is that the
current approach is already configurable. In the AFS filesystem links with
the target @sys can be used for system specific configurations. Unfortunately
NFS and most Linux filesystem do not support this. Here one has to change the
links for each system.
