The clean answer is to actually split the whole monster into
smaller packages, which can be built an deployed completely separately.

Just had a look at the 'bootstrap' tree: it contains a full copy
of dmake (even worse: with utogenerated files ;-o) - that would be
my firt candidate for being kicked out. Generic buildtools should
never be bundled into individual application's source trees.
