Appears there needs to be a wiki page for the build system...

1. Makefile.src contains all the information common to all builds (source files, version info, etc. You can trim down the other Makefiles by a lot using this, and it can reduce build errors dramatically.)
2. Makefile.inc is automatically regenerated dependency info.
Use
$ make -f Makefile.osx depgen
$ mv Makefile.new Makefile.inc
(for instance)
3. .../mk/*, configure*, and the *.m4 files are used for automake stuff on Linux. You don't need it.
If you want a barebones *NIX build (gcu and X11), Makefile.std replaces all that stuff fairly reliably.
