 Replace the existing Autoconf and Automake based build system with
 something new. Goals:

 * Easier configuration of BSPs (BSP options)

 * Easier to maintain (nobody understands the details of the existing build

 * Faster builds (especially on Windows)

 * Reusable build specifications (e.g. generate documentation for BSP
 options for the user manual)

 * Validation of built artefacts (e.g. ensure that the objects are built as
 specified using the DWARF debug information)

 * Support building of BSPs external to the project

 * Customization of the build (e.g. build only a subset of the RTEMS

 Proposed solution:

 * Use waf for the build system

 * Specify the build through build specification items maintained by
