What about a small package that was nothing more than the parts necessary
for a "make config" and graphical variants, a specially-written ftp client
(which would do an automatic anon login and passwd, get files, and then
exit), and a script generated from .config to automatically download the
necessary parts using the ftp client? This could be called "make
config_ftp" or some such. It could make a log file containing the
currently installed parts, so that subsequent runs of "make config_ftp"
would only get the missing parts. Then, an intermediary "make unpack" to
unpack the collected sources.
