Well, IMO, the build-system is a very important key component of a 
package. What you are doing right now is applying the working 
principle's RTEMS was based on 20-15 years ago, something, many people 
immediately removed once RTEMS went public (In particular Jiri Gaisler 
and me).

That's what I have been doing for most of time. However, I didn't expect 
people to pick them up for major contributions.

My opinion differs.

It has been and is harming the project insofar, as it is
* a "light bulb attracting the flies" (until the flies notice they will 
get burnt).

* the origin of having to carry around ballast inside of the source-tree.
