Yeah, we don't have one at all, in fact.  The build master does not
currently do any builds itself, so it never populates ${TOOLDIR}.

I don't think the use of -S here is really necessary.  I'd vote for simply
removing it, although we could easily enough work around it by building a
newer mtree (I was already planning to get those sort changes pulled up)
and using it instead.
