May I chime in again? Sorry for being pedantic, but I want it done right
before we are got stuck in another "historical reasons" situation.

I don't like "bootstrap". Telling our users to download/build and then
going into "bootstrap" to make install and find the binaries is really
non-intuitive. Please consider names such as
dist/built/src/rawbuild/build/... they are  are all better ones (ie
where a user actually might expect binaries to be after they build).

Consider renaming the old "build" folder to something else and use build
for the "new rawbuild" would be my proposal.
