You ask a very good question.

I think it is OK to ask them to change a "few" lines, and my proposal
about different Makefiles was just way over the top.

However, doing a VFS already requires that they understand lots, and I
think there is a way to change the Makefile so that they only have to
change the "all:" target line.

I will have to see what I can get to work.
