Someone correct me if I am wrong, but dmake as we have it
today clearly lies in this category.

Concerning the external sources that we still carry: would
source tarballs of MPL/LGPL stuff be considered binary form?
This is mostly what we do today so it would solve
most of our issues (gettext still has to go), but that
workaround would remove the motivation to further cleanup
of the source (glibc could stay!)
