Sure, it's easy (I already use it), but it's not one 'make'... (*)

(*) Well, maybe I said wrong word. Not that I mean "one 'configure/make'",
    I mean 'one CC run on most files'. The reason why I so want it is
    in next sentence.

Yes, there are many advantages in several builddirs, but we have to do
same work several times (for example, generating packets_gen.) It is
OK for x86_64, but I find it sad on old machines.

First I thought that you have forgot something, but now I (hope)
understand it: all clients should have generated Makefiles already
(ie we already make autogen.sh/configure for each subdirectory.)
This is good for compile testing, so thank you.
But... That will give us as many CC starts, as many subdirs we have.

In spec you can see freeciv-common subpackage: all common files
for clients and server are going there. I thought about
something like 'make common' to compile common files once...
Dreams, dreams...

PS. Marko, may I ask you not to insert mail addresses while you answer
to maillist? Just to make spamers life harder ;)
