Adding --with-sysroot is not that big a problem as it will be ignored

2.2.6 useless for now but thats not the final patch. Final solution
would be to make 2.2 and
2.4 coexist unless there are road blockers.

yes backward compatibility is in my minds. The intention was for
getting more hands on testing 2.4
