No, but I missed the part where you explained why it's not possible to
do it any other way.  Such as putting relevant details in a
well-structured format in a separate file that can easily be read and
parsed automatically, without waiting for an hour-long build of the
source tree that may or may not fail with errors (such as when trying
to build sunaudiosink).
