I would really like it to be possible to build this way.
I would mildly dislike being forced to build this way.

Will you still support leaving the .o files in
And is that /usr/obj.sparc or /usr/src/../obj.sparc or what? In my
case, it matters, because /usr/src is a symlink that eventually
resolves to /sources/working-usr-src or /mouse/sources/working-usr-src
(depending on the machine). I'd really dislike having to hack on
things to avoid having /sources/obj.sparc and /mouse/sources/obj.sun3
Losing obj directories scattered throughout the tree strikes me as
small loss - even more so because I've never used them myself. :-)
