Hmm - wouldn't it be possible to just "gbuildify" it by having the
gbuild run build.pl?

binfilter can nicely be built in parallel to other stuff, can't it?
Being forced to build it last will be quite a penalty.

But what about the other gbuild stuff? While binfilter itself might be
able to get 4 CPUs busy, the other modules probably then have to sit
and wait for others.

But of course I have no numbers, so it's just gut feeling.
