Rubish! There is nothing (major) wrong with it as it is now. Yes, hardcoding
isn't good, but neither is 'an-hour-build'. Which you'd get if you do three
full builds after each other...

It's not especially problematic to maintain as it is now, and I ask you
to recognize the fact that we don't only ship amd64 or (fast) i386...
Some of the arch's isn't that fast. Don't know how the m68k port is going
or if it's still alive, but that would be a major point in getting speed
increases in the build. I DO know that _I_ have been 'slapped around' for
doing to extensive builds...
