Sorry, I still don't get it.  What will this actually do?
How do you tell it *how* to build the file?

Why use a bunch of variables all set to yes, instead of a single
variable with a list of file names?

Also, it's conventional to use ".", not "_", in the variable name:

        FILESBUILD.tralala = yes

New features that contain documentation are much easier to review.
