This may sound strange coming from someone that's been merging 132 gbuild
patches between branches in the last few weeks, but I am not sure what the
definitive list is:
* main/Module_ooo.mk seems to list every gbuild module, but sd is not
there, and is a gbuild module on my branch...
* gbuild modules usually have an empty <module>/prj/d.lst, but AOO builds
when it's not empty
* gbuild modules usually have a 2 line <module>/prj/build.lst
* gbuild modules usually have a <module>/prj/makefile.mk, which usually
calls $(GNUMAKE) with various options. Since $(GNUMAKE) is needed to launch
the gbuild makefiles, it is a robust check, but it could theoretically be
launched from any file specified in <module>/prj/build.lst...
* gbuild modules usually have a <module>/Makefile

The <module>/Makefile should be easiest for now ("ls main/*/Makefile").
