+1 to the simple approach.

Given the need to do this, I guess I don't really see the value of
storing scripts in the build tree.  But I suppose someone actually
uses them from there somehow.  (I'd expect getting the imports to work
would be a painful exercise, but I've seen enough tortured processes
that I wouldn't put it past folks.)
