I was looking at that, but I have the impression that the source code 
for a number of "external" projects is not present in the mercurial 
checkout and still has to be retrieved as part of the building process. 
There are makefiles, patches etc., but no source code worth mentioning, 
in subdirectories stlport, openssl, hunspell, libxslt...

It might be all of these:

Vriendelijke groet,
