Sounds hackish; the config would have to be rewritten for every compile.
build.h contains build specific information, config.h contains
configuration. That was the reason we created two files of them to begin
with... In v2 it was only one file.

What about this:

We -include config.h and have dependencies on build.h only where needed.
In theory this could be two object files. In practice it's a few more
because we include the C file in every romstage.c.
