there are some subtleties involved before you could state one is easier than another. cost, wheel selection, axle size, caliper options, available rotor diameters, fork performance in OEM configuation...and so on.
the good news is that there are examples of many fork/wheel/brake combinations to look at, and all of the work is fairly easy.
if you build a bike, come back with a photo, i'd like to see what you decided to do.
