Yes, i used the same file as a guide to generate the paths.
Here is what i did in case someone wants to take a look at it
out of curiosity. It is in a ugly-was-only-intended-for-me state.

I had a feeling it can be done quickly that is why i asked here.
When following -current, sometimes i have cought the CVS
tree in a state that the build failed with messages "files X,Y,Z in flist
but not in destdir" or the opposite. However, the files from
the disabled parts didn't stop the build, so i thought that the build
system has a fast way to grep the distrib lists and autogenerate
the list of files that should be in destdir.

I am surprised that nobody else considered this. With the flexibility of
the build system, i thought it would be a common need.

Thank your for replying.
