Mea Culpa.  I re-ran my tests from June 10th, and indeed, the -O objdir 
*is* made for ` -O ../obj build`!  

My test was originally for ` -O ../obj -T ../tools build`, and 
that takes a bit longer, as the tools are not in the default place at 
../obj/tooldir.  However, after building the tools, it does make the 
objdir tree.  I simply didn't wait long enough on my test runs. 

Thank you!
