# For host tools, the objdir also reflects the host architecture.
1. This isn't just for host tools -- it's for other things inside the
source tree (i.e. /usr/games/boggle, where the dictionary thing blew up,
which led me to discover the misnamed obj.* dir).
2. Even if it were for host tools, wouldn't that also cause problems
with building for multiple architectures at the same time?
Either way, I posit it is a bug. Shall I submit it as such?
