I don't know that this is presently fixable in any sane way.  The problem is
that there's now a top-level objdir.  I could hack it up to skip creating
the symlink at the top level, resulting in the objdir acting like a
`standard' one at that directory.

Note that BSDOBJDIR is intended to provide an objdir tree *outside* of src.
If you're putting it inside the src tree, I have to wonder why you aren't
simply using standard objdirs...?
