I'm happy for id Software, but make (pmake, gmake) are probably the best
tools for a project like Quake2LNX. We simply need to clean up the
build infrastructure a bit. Pulling in additional dependency (such as
Python) is a thing to avoid, IMHO.

This is also seems like a bogus thing to me. We'd better know exactly
what files are we building upon.
