In regards to and similar projects the kernel is really
not the issue here. Getting a self-hosted userspace up and running
using the suckless base tools is the most difficult part.

This is mostly because our suckless base tools will probably never
work (by design) with most configure scripts.

Several solutions have been proposed. One is to rewrite the build
systems of the affected software to use make or mk. The other solution
is to build inside an /emul namespace.

Nobody cares how you build the kernel.
