Believe me, you certainly don't want to have anything like an
bootstrap situation at all, unless *REALLY* necessary.
(toolchain+libc should be the only case, else you *most likely*
have *very poor* engineering)

Keep in mind: anytime the depency graph is not an conflict-free
DAG, it makes *a lot* of trouble to package/distro maintainers.

Normally, I'm strictly against bundled 3rd-party libraries,
but that's one of the *very few* cases, where it makes quite
sense, BUT: the bundled stuff should be trimmed down to what's
absolutely necessary, and maybe even rename everything.
