In curious, does -O work at all?

When I did "./ -O /usr/obj -U release", it made only
/usr/obj directory.  After that, make program compiled
everything in each source directory.  It even didn't make
obj directory in each source directory.

I'm using "./ -M /usr/obj -U release" for now.  It
makes directory like "/usr/obj/mnt/raid/usr/src/..." but at
least it works.

If -O is working fine on other environments, I'd like to
know why it doesn't work on my environment.  I'm using 1.6ZC
compiled few days ago.  What should I check?  Thanks.
