Tools (tooldirs) cannot be shared between trunk and "major" branches -
use different tooldirs if you work with several branches, or nuke your
old tooldir if you are switching to a new branch.
I'm confused by the way you phrase your question though: "how often,
if ever, do I want to build tools again" - it doesn't make sense. (I
deliberately ignore the case where one would run make wrapper manually
- it's obvious that's not what you ask). If you use update builds,
tools are always built just as anything else. If there was a fix to
make(1) or gcc(1) or any other tool, your "build.sh -u release" &c
will rebuild affected tool as necessary.

See above. They *are* rebuilt for every build but for update builds
with no changes to the tools it takes (relatively) little time.
You can probably get specific number for your machine by running
appropriate build.sh -u tools twice in a row.
