And this is what we want to do first:

  • Create a "build helper", responsible for
    • getting the source,
    • getting prerequisites and pre-builds,
    • configuring the sources, taking care of dependencies ...,
    • and (optionally) building it.
  • Add missing/useful configuration switches (e.g. for headless support).
  • Re-factor according to needs (e.g. writer only etc.).

This "build helper" may be compared to the Linux kernels menuconfig / xconfig, first configure it extensively, ideally in a graphical way, than build it.
