No.  I think there is a disadvantage to grouping these kind of
configuration parameter settings by our idea of what distros there
are and how they work.

A distro we haven't heard of doesn't want to patch our makefiles to
add themselves to a huge list, and we don't want a list of all the
distros in the universe in our code.  They just want to set the
settings available to the values for their setup.
