Ok, some points:

1 - Can we get rid of all ThirdParty ?
No, today we need sqlite source and cppunit:
- sqlite because utilities
- cppunit because tests are done to a specific version. upgrade would tka 

2 - 64 bits
Compiles and unittests too. I could test in production since my only base 
application test in mapguide and is not running very good yet on 64 bits ( i'm 
getting there )

3 - Build Linux only ?
With minor changes, same buildsystem can be used fro OpenSolaris and BSD.
With some changes even Mac OS

4 - rpm distribution mechanism
- Done today, i do in a regular basis.
Providers can be built independently of fdo core.
General specs can be made available togheter
