This is simply not correct; I regularly perform builds with something
like this:
	rm -rf /var/obj/woot
	mkdir /var/obj/woot
	setenv MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX /var/obj/woot
	setenv TOOLDIR /var/obj/woot/tools
	./ -m vax tools
	    # 7 minutes later, $TOOLDIR is baked

In this case, $TOOLDIR set in the environment to a non-existant
directory, and correctly populated $TOOLDIR.
