The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive. As I suggested to  
Andre and Joost on IRC last night, you could use the  
"add_line_to_config_mk" function in configure to add a statement like
   include $(srcdir)/backends/platform/wince/FOOBAR.mk
to load whatever custom rules you need on WinCE.

We could also consider stripping down the current Makefile a bit (in  
particular, move the set of warnings specified there, or make them  
conditional), to cause less "pain" for porter's custom build  
requirements. We simply need some feedback from porters on what they  
need :).
