That was my point. It's supposed to simplify the config process and
create SDK, QEMU images and such.

But on the other hand, do we need Yet-another-build-system? Does it
offer something useful to set it apart from what's already out there?

At the very least someone could add the FreeRunner to this list of
supported target platforms for Yocto. Maybe the GP2X could be another
target to work on.
