How does "the build system" you want to make it work with actually
work?  Is it incapable of "compiling" a "source file" into an
"object file" that happens to be a text using an arbitrary

I was hoping that readers are imaginative enough to replace Makefile
with whatever way things are normally built with when reading my
message, and the reader can just replace "source file" with
"config.h.sample", "compiler" with "test -f config.h || cat
config.h.sample >config.h" and "object file" with "config.h".
