I also proposed some makefile cleanups, fi. the removal of the two main
environment variables. (Which is my fault in the first place entirely

However, I seem to suffer from the 'want to do ...' without being able
to put sufficient time aside for it., Fi, I was also working on this :

for some weeks now, and put no more than an active 30 min in it (maybe I
should have committed the parts already). I also haven't even looked at
what Hos committed.

(not to mention tinderbox, bonsai and lxr :-P  Oh, and the browser

'planning' ? Oh yeah, sure :)

I just dug up my old post from 1 Nov 2004 :

    Some possible clean-up items:
    - remove the need for NANBLENDERHOME and MAKEFLAGS in the environment.
    - fix/cleanup the extern/ handling
    - cleanup source/*.mk, move to ./

In 2004, Kent Mein and Chris Want proposed to do some work on it.

I'll be silent here. (I'll make some time.)
