Another oddity: I restarted the build with -u so that I could get to the
point where it was failing and do the link manually, but it went right past
it, and happily started installing into DESTDIR... leaving a very empty
/rescue. I'm no toolchain/ guru, but that seems like a Bad Thing to
me... if it fails once, it should fail again, not look like it's working but
leave one without /rescue.
