The obj.{target}.{buildhost} directories in mkdict/ and mkindex/ are
used to build tools that are executed on the building host to generate
the data files that go into the top level obj.{target} directory.  The
obj.{target} directory in boggle/ holds object modules and the
executable for the target architecture.
