Well, I was trying to pass in MKTOOLS=no, and it still wasn't working
as expected.  But see below...

Got it, okay.

It turned out that I had somehow managed to set HOST_CFLAGS in my working
environment to be "-O3 -mv8 -mcpu=supersparc", something I hadn't figured
out until I ran 'sh -x args...'.

I'm running and building just fine for the moment.  I'll know as
soon as I get home as to whether it works or not, but it looks promising.

We now return you to our program in progress:  Symphony for Head and
