In this case I propose a new rule. platform specific patches in
contrib/src/Patches should get their platformname appended.
Also, we can probably do some cleaning up in the scripts, because
it's starting to get a bit more ugly with so many dependencies and
platforms (and crossplatforms :D ).
AndIi have an idea for the download urls. we can implement a fallback
We would spilt PACKAGE_URL into PACKAGE_LOCATION and PACKAGE_NAME
Then we can build two URLs. PACKAGE_VLURL (from videolanservers) and
PACKAGE_ORGURL (original source).
we could then try to download first from the original location. if it
fails, we can try our own server.
and I would like to add a "download-first" mode where all packages
are downloaded before we commence compiling anything.
