Neither, instead people should learn to separate applications from OS.
RTEMS (the OS) itself is autoconf/automake based, application developers
should use what ever they prefer to use.
That said, I consider both the *.cfg's and RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH
approaches to suffer from the same design flaws approaches and not worth
to be considered.
