    Whatever doesn't ship in the .tar.bz2. See 'make mrproper'.

    Agreed. I started to hack on this awhile back. Most of it isn't very
    hard -- a mere matter of duplicating the source tree topology and
    putting a makefile into each build dir, with a bit of VPATH magic in
    Rules.make -- but a few details with dependencies eventually drove me
    up the wall and I moved on.

    One interesting thing about my efforts (such as they were) is that I
    got make-in-given-directory almost for free. Instead of merely copying
    makefiles from srcdir to builddir, I put a standard template in each
    build dir:

    SRCDIR := {fill in with script} # corresponding src dir
    VPATH := $(SRCDIR)
    TOPDIR := {fill in with script} # ../../..
    TOPSRC := {fill in with script} # what we think of as TOPDIR
    include $(TOPSRC)/.config
    include $(SRCDIR)/Makefile

    or something like that.
