Yes, always. You're like Christos, old-fashioned.
The build.sh path is easy to document, and doesn't have the issues like
the one reported in that thread.
I don't mind the fact that people use config/make depend/make, but I do
think newcomers should get the build.sh path better advertised because
the list of caveats for the historic path is way too long, and we get
dozens of "error" reports each time config(1) has to be updated in
FWIW, I never do config/make depend/make anymore. I find build.sh much
more simple, because it's very easy to build for another host/arch/source
tree that way.
