It just happened again. I found I had remove "UPDATE=1" from my mk.conf.
That doesn't imply BUILD_DONE, does it? (again problems with groff in tools)
(UPDATE=1 was fine for -m acorn32 which I hadn't built before, but not
for -m macppc where tools.macppc/tools.NetBSD-1.5Z{,A,C}-i386 directories
already existed).
