That's my thoughts too. Having separate platform-dependent 'config' headers
on one side and a monolithic build description file with embedded
platform-specific options on the other just doesn't feel right.

But overall the build system looks very promising and reasonable. Also, IMO
the requirements are very clear and appropriate. One requirement I would
like to add, though, is a possibility to specify a different set of sources
for the same target depending on the build variant (I am almost sure that's
already possible, just want to see it as a requirement).
