please refrain from doing this. A local Makefile.inc is a lot less
greppy than a big list kept somewhere central, because it is very
intuitive where it is and what it is good for. It is pretty much common
sense to have a Makefile per sub directory in most software projects

Also, libpayload will continue to grow and evolve.
