Best practice for building a large amount of source files

Michael Habibi <mikehabibi@...>

If I have some source I want to bring into my layer, for example:

Recipe dir:
meta-mylayer/recipes-management/myapplication/myapplication_1.0/<tons of source files>

What is the best option for adding all of these and compiling? As far as I know, you have to do one of the following:

1) Use a fetch that fetches a tarball with all your source, or a repo with all of your source
2) Use a million-line long SRC_URI assignment to include every file that your application uses.

Is there a third (or fourth) option that I may have missed?
