yes a big task...

can you add these informations into the wiki page. so I will avoid to ask again and again.
I know myself ;). then it would be possible to point upstream to the wiki page.
so they are extending the libcbf library and did not try to integrate their changes.

- ok, let's first produce shlib the right way.
- update the rules files to build it the upstream way.
- then deal with all library produced during this official build until we fix all identified issues.
all this to avoid building a build system on our own.
