The choice for doing this as a make file was a pretty obvious one, I
want a single point where to define the directories required for a
localization, and that is client.mk. So anything building on top of that
directory list will be a makefile as well. Not the easiest thing, but I
assume that folks will want to get up a minimal environment for checks
etc anyway, so they may just as well start here.
And it's still easier than figuring out all those dirs and bad CVS
subdirs and line endings from tarballs etc yourself.
