Argh, that is annoying. I managed to hide the git clone and the
./download step into the make
but you can't make before autogen... chicken and egg thing...
Any possibility to postpone these check or only do them if the autogen
option says --with-system for these dll (i'm guessing here), with the
understanding that if you are using the 'built-in' ones they will
pulled in ?
