This is simply not correct; I regularly perform builds with something
rm -rf /var/obj/woot
setenv MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX /var/obj/woot
setenv TOOLDIR /var/obj/woot/tools
./build.sh -m vax tools
# 7 minutes later, $TOOLDIR is baked
In this case, $TOOLDIR set in the environment to a non-existant
directory, and build.sh correctly populated $TOOLDIR.
