The cleandir step in tools/ happens at a different time than it does in the
rest of src/ -- tools/ only does that immediately before rebuilding an
out-of-date tool. Why would you want to disable that step, given my
comments about version skew risk?
(Note that tools is not in the src/Makefile SUBDIRS list, as its build
procedure isn't quite the same.)
: thanks for this work. any reason not to enable USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN for
"I don't have time to test it today" is the only reason I can't enable it
personally. If it builds and works properly for you, flip it on -- the
switch is toward the top of bsd.own.mk.
