Looks good.

I often use the kernel's make menuconfig to explore configuration options. And review how they affect the resulting configuration file. Something similar in DPDK would be nice.

But we must have a command line based build system, so our entire project can be built from scratch without any human intervention after checking out the project from our repository.

And there must be a 1:1 relationship between the options offered by the GUI and the command line versions of the configuration tool.

BTW: We cross compile, even though our target is also x86_64. This ensures that the distributed binary firmware is built by the cross compiler kept in the project repository together with the source code of the firmware. This way, the resulting firmware is the same, regardless which host we built it on.
