I've setup a quick Gitlab repo with a `hello world` project for you and
others that would like to check it out.  Note that this is WIP and very
much glued to my project.  Also, dependencies are resolved at
configuration time of the project (while generating the Makefile), not a
build time.  In the future, I would like to change that so that it's
possible to copy the Makefile on any distro.  There's currently no
installation step also.

Here's the repo:

Since it's glued to my project, and since I'm very familiar with
Makefiles, it only support Makefiles for now.  What would be the other
targets you have in mind?
