I think the {platform} thing in build.conf in general needs some work...

Really gen-build.py needs to create a build-outputs.mk which is
appropriate for all platforms which use configure & Makefile, with an
OBJECTS which uses $(OSDIR) and $(DEFAULT_OSDIR) as determined by
configure (though since DEFAULT_OSDIR is a constant for the Unix build
system that could be eliminated).
