No we could have a third_party directory with a tar or something.
Breakpad isn't a standard library/package though, so we'll probably
have to include it with the package.

Yeah, Windows will require more work + additional deps.  Windows
Breakpad was designed with Visual Studio users in mind, not
cygwin/mingw/make environments.  Needless to say, that's why I didn't
even bother attempting this yet.
