     Yes, this turned out to be an interesting experiment.  This
succeeded.  My environment didn't contain anything that looked too
onerous, but it did contain USETOOLS=never for convenience when I want
to do one-off stuff.  Removing that resolved the difference.  I never
noticed before because my full build script does
"./ ...  -T ...". has USETOOLS=yes in createmakewrapper(), but otherwise
doesn't do anything with it.  Perhaps it should be updated to set
USETOOLS=yes near the beginning?

     Thanks for helping to solve the mystery.
