If my two cents are of utility:
I'm happy with either 2) or 3). I do understand the appeal of 3) for
those of you doing the real work.
I don't think 1) is sustainable, especially with XFree86 Inc. making
Imake, and all Imakefiles in the XFree86 source distribution, their
(...which may, ironically, prove to be the most effective act of
euthanasia for that long-maligned configuration system. :) )
 see the XFree86 CVS commit list
