If you just `setenv USETOOLS never', then all the direct invocations
of make(1) will work the old way. This is the easiest way to just
build to / or hack around in lower directories.

Alternatively, you can put, say, /usr/local/tools/bin in your
path, alias `m' or something to nbmake-i386, and then run
with -T /usr/local/tools. That's almost as convenient.
