   When I wrote the original gen_makefile we did not have a config file 
and  therefore many of my vars ended up hardcoded in the files. Final 
location is unimportant as long as it is persistent between reboots (not 
tmp) and visible to the code.

   I have put some time into a simple parser for the configuration file. 
(I _cannot_ be 'sourced' as we currently do with the main configuration 
file because I use package names appended to CONFIG_ and some names have 
"hypens" in them) .. Is there any specific feature would like me to include?
