Sure, but until we aren't there...

I didn't talk about the dmake makefiles that are used to unpack and
patch, I was talking about using dmake for building the external modules
that come with their own build system. The in the root
directory of the external modules are not part of the patch, but some
patches contain files that are necessary to build the stuff,
either on all or only on some platforms.
