Did you mean external instead of extras?

* IIRC every built extension depends on readlicense_oo for the license
* setup_native builds the ulfconv executable that is needed for scp2
  (yes, I already suggested at least once it should be moved elsewhere,
  probably to l10ntools. Good time to do it? :-)
* sysui depends on setup_native for the same reason as scp2 does--the
  .desktop and mimetype files are processed by ulfconv :-)

I am very aware of that; I just took respite to work on 3.6 bugs for a
while :-) (I thought David was going to keep it rolling on, but
unfortunately he got interested in other things too :-)
