That's the vague idea of the current makefiles there. But since many
people didn't want to change the existing makefiles within each
library folder, almost everything is stuck into externals/Makefile.
I think if someone came up with a better system, then there wouldn't
be objections to replacing the makefiles within each lib directory.
Ideally, it should follow all of the GNU standards, like using
'prefix', DESTDIR, etc.
