I've just started to learn using build.sh, and I found the following
odd behaviour (which may of course be my fault).
I started build.sh, on NetBSD/i386 1.6K host, sources on readonly NFS mount, with the
./build.sh -a i386 -D mydestdir -O myobjdir -R myreldir -T mytooldir distribution
Initially the "my*dir" directories did not exist.
After build.sh got the make bootstrapped, it started the cleandir phase, and:
1. How come it tries to clean the directories in the source tree (which is
readonly, and doesn't matter anyway, since objdir is somewhere else).
Is this my error?
2. If 1 is fixed, should there be some intelligence that cleandir not be
done if the objdir does not exist?
