It's been some time, but I've queried a variety of folks on this list
individually regarding various paths to create a build book in the
spirit of Linux from Scratch [1] that replaces the Linux kernel with
the GNU Linux-libre kernel, and sticks to a primarily GNU OS package
collection.  Thanks to everyone who has responded with ideas.  I'm
now at the point where I've tried a variety of languages, from simple
shell to more elaborate Python code, to write the build and test
infrastructure.  Of course I chose the one I'm the least skilled at,
but love the most: Emacs Lisp.

I saw a post recently that reminded me I'm missing something in my
build function manifest: License analysis and certification as
"Freed Software" a la FOSSology [2].  My project is not a distribution,
but a build book.  I wonder if there is a way to write in hooks to
FOSSology rather than attempt writing a license analysis piece from
scratch?  Is this something from an Emacs Lisp perspective that has
been done by someone else, or in any other language?  I did see there
is an SPDX module developed by UNO [3] but that doesn't feel like
what I'm looking for.  I'm thinking something much simpler.
