why wouldn't we want to keep the build rules simple and the same
for everyone?

We wouldn't want to do that if it entailed bloated and opaque executables on all platforms, or if it entailed too-complicated C programs on all platforms. We should be able to avoid both problems.

Perhaps we could supply a different build recipe for platforms that lack a working shell. Such platforms can't run shell scripts, after all, so maybe it would suffice to supply a text file or a comment containing build instructions for such platforms.
