My hope would be that once we are completely on gbuild, we could make gbuild
(including tests) relying only on WORKDIR, not on OUTDIR/solver. The only
reason to keep OUTDIR around would be that scp2 doesnt understand anything
else. Then we could either:
- make scp2 pack from WORKDIR and forget about solver
- or replace scp2 with something sane
"something sane" could be something in gbuild that populates a installset while
building (i.e. a new OUTDIR, that incedentally looks like an install)
