I'm thinking that the 16/24h rims almost can't be money well spent.
There are plenty of modern hubs with such drillings, perhaps not a matched set though. And vintage lightweight tubular rims should never be laced up to newer rear hubs with modern levels of dish (8s and newer).

My opinion (having done some very odd wheel builds over the past 30 years) is, unless an opportunistic purchase just falls into your lap as far as hubs goes, don't send any good money after bad and don't waste too much time on this.
