I agree with all of this. We should switch to complete Config.lbs for v2.
Also, the reason why I haven't submitted my patch is that buildtarget is
still broken for -fno-stack-protector (as per a previous email), and I
figured that as long as I was moving all the revisions up, I would wait
for that to work, but I can't wait much longer, and I really don't grok
how the config system works enough to hack on it without getting lost.
