Re: Build system discussion for Arrow (and Orc?)

hi Michael,

I wanted to rekindle this discussion so that we can resolve these
issues before Arrow 0.10.0 is released. Can you let us know what needs
to be changed or submit a PR? I have a PR coming in for ARROW-902
shortly (offline builds), and I think it would be a good idea to
enable all third party dependencies to use dynamic linking if the user
so desired.

The current approach for ORC is mainly in this form as there are things missing to get to a smooth, non-vendored released binary.
