You keep saying that, without showing the problems. From what I can see,
all you say is "it's wrong", "it's very wrong" and "there's major problems with it".
I (and more) have stated that the previos (and now yours?) build system was
WAY to expensive. Improving things, for whatever reason, is a good thing.
You on the other hand, went the OTHER way, you WORSENED the build.

And throwing CPU time out the window with the excuse "if you can't keep up,
get out" is in _MY_ opinion STUPID.

The ONLY problem with the current (partial) build system is that part of (!!)
the build is hardcoded. Where libs are, and the name of the MySQL/PgSQL libs
will rarely (if ever) change so this is not a PROBLEM, it's only a 'nitpicking'.
