Is it absolutely necessary to have that level of flexibility in the
build system? That is, even if someone wants to build only the server
dir, is it harmful to require them to build the makefiles for all
the dirs, then cd to the server dir and make in there? Maybe there
are scenarios I don't know about ..

I'd prefer to if there was one configure file - that will make it
easier to port to multiple platforms and also simpler for a new
user/developer to understand.
