I agree with everything you've said, but I'd like to add one thing:
This drives me nuts on the Mac port; the build system has a fair amount
of cruft left over (see autoMakefile versus Makefile.am, for starters).
If we're thinking about long-term plans on the build system, thinking
about portability is important.
(On the Mac, and AFAIK all other operating systems other than
Linux, building a kernel module is relatively straightforward;
just compile everything with a few extra options).
