There's zero problem finding one here.  Mind posting your build commands and
error dump?  The inclusion of <> should provide a do-nothing
install target.

You can actually put $TOOLDIR in $PATH if you so desire; the programs are
now namespace clean as far as that goes, so they won't clash with the rest
of your $PATH.

This is the only thing I can see as a problem.  NBUILDJOBS doesn't appear to
be working correctly, and I really don't know why at this moment.  So this
should be left unset for now.

(Parallel "nbmake-i386 -jN" in most subdirs seems to work, but it completely
craps out at the top level for some reason.  This is on my to-do list.)
