Yeah, I had a look at this before. The point is that I would prefer to
keep things _simple_ and self-contained. This capturing requires some
helper Makefile and complex call nestings that likely only people with
advanced make and shell skills can understand and adopt to their projects.

But maybe things are that complicated already, and this is just
different complexity. How do you compile simple out-of-tree modules
against 2.4 PPC kernels? Are there any standard flags? Or is it
different for each board or each compiler version or whatever?
