I like this idea, but can't you already do this in the Makefile, but just adding stuff to 
the rule for BOARD_config?

For the MPC8349E-mITX, Freescale's BSP ships with a closed-source binary firmware for the 
5-port Ethernet switch.  It would be great if the denx.de version of U-Boot could 
automatically add support for this binary if it existed in the development tree.  The idea 
would be that u-boot.bin would include this binary.
