I'm missing a description of the Makefile mechanism and the principle of the configuration. Or is this too trivial for a Hacker's Guide? I do not think so since
  • it's a nice introduction,
  • all hackers have to understand it and
  • it's a good place to put hyperlinks to the real stuff in this guide.
If there's some positive feedback I'd like to start on this myself, but I'd need some help - at least for the language.
