Hi Simon,

Sure. Using perforce you get loads of directories -- the number of branched 
directories times the number of branches. As each branch first contains the 
branchpoints, I try to remove the branch name dependency from the and put it into an WORK_BRANCH environment variable. That saves 
me from editing a big number of Makefiles on each and every branch.
Building all Makefiles is also hard since the number of directories is 
steadily increasing.

At the moment I try an approach with symlinks and a bit of shell script magic 
that looks good so far. I will give it the first real world test today.
