Then we'd just need to create the reference under the compat/ directory and folks who checkout the whole tree would get all the bits.  Is there a problem with that approach I'm missing?

AFAIK, it does not provide a way to "automatically" checkout required library conditionally.
It may not be desirable to checkout/download all compat libraries when building on OS X for instance, as it may not be desirable to checkout lic/xnu dependencies when building on Linux.
