"build -t" will put the compiler (and other host tools) in the TOOLDIR,
which defaults to a subdirectory of the objdir for src/tools (I think).
I have a TOOLDIR=/some/where in my /etc/mk.conf.
Note that the "build -t" compiler is the cross-compiler for use on the
current host, not whatever happens to be the target you want to build
for (even if they happen to be the same architecture).
