Sounds good, perhaps a wiki page for that?  Usually, its a question  
of who does the work to keep it up to date, hopefully being a wiki  
will help with that.

Yeah, I think we should have that ability.  I think the best way to  
achieve that is with a autoconf/configure.  Then it would  
automatically find dependencies and build what it can considering.   
Its just a matter of someone doing the work.
