Uh, am I missing something?  The "-m" switch to "make" works fine for me.

     -m directory
             Specify a directory in which to search for and makefiles
             included via the <...> style.  Multiple directories can be added
             to form a search path.  This path will override the default sys-
             tem include path: /usr/share/mk.  Furthermore the system include
             path will be appended to the search path used for "..."-style in-
             clusions (see the -I option).

When I want to do a "make build" with DESTDIR set, I just go to
/usr/src/share/mk first and do a "make install" with DESTDIR set.  That puts
everything in ${DESTDIR}/usr/share/mk and then I go back to /usr/src with
DESTDIR set, fire up "make -f -m ${DESTDIR}/usr/share/mk build"
and off it runs ...
