Sure, but this means we have to do some hacking. We have to add varianbles to
Configuration.tmpl, code in Configure and configure for setting them to
defaults and code in the Makefile.tmpl for using them, etc. I personally think
its a more than we really want to accept to change just to get rid of this
overkill. Is it worth the effort? If yes, ok, I volunteer for this job when I
find time because the current overkill is annoying to me, too. Should I take
some time and check for a clean but not too advanced solution?
