Also, I'm thinking that for the SDK sources it might make sense to only
include packages with an InstallDev section and the toolchain and do
some work to make sure that packages built as part of the base system
can't have their config options overridden (at least for an already
included flavour), in order to guarantee that the compilation produces
identical libraries and such.
