Then I tend to wonder how you managed to get dbsym and mdsetimage without
the toolchain, or for that matter, how you compiled anything...!

Are you explicitly setting TOOLDIR somewhere?  (Environment?  mk.conf?)  And
if so, where?

...Rule of thumb: on build breakage, always include:

* build log copy-and-paste

* the contents of your mk.conf and any environment variables you've set to
  do a build

* exactly what commands you run to build (whether "make blah" or ""
  or what have you).

The tools should rebuild automatically as needed.  (See the "rule of thumb"
