You have to rebuild 'make' and 'gas' here.  Probably 'tsort' and other
stuff I've forgotten as well.  After rebuilding make you can unsetenv

After the recent 'rebuild kernel before rebuilding libc' changes, I'm
not sure that it's possible to upgrade using source only from 0.9 to
-current anymore.  Is it possible to build a working -current kernel
with -current's tools, built with 0.9's headers and libraries?  I
would check, but I have no backup devices.
