No it doesn't do that. However, it does attempt to use the already
installed make to guess the intended value of TOOLDIR. It doesn't
care if the already installed make does something unexpected, because
things are supposed to work even if the guessed TOOLDIR is wrong (and
I recommend that the user should use the "-T" flag to set the TOOLDIR
instead of relying on this guess).
Nevertheless, your patch looks helpful, and I see that Luke has applied it.
