Building all externals as single files is not that important. What's
important is to have and use the externals. I was able build most of the
CVS externals, which is more than what is in the build/src directory.
There should be maintainers for each platform (Mac,Windows,Linuxes), that
would share information on difficult to build externals. This effort
would help the community more than trying to fit all submitted externals
into an ideal framework.
