Subject: USE_TOOLS and tool path variables?

Hi list,

I got the following fallout, mailed from a pkgsrc-bulk build:

>  sysutils/radmind                   

ERROR: /usr/pkg/bin/ 
ERROR: *** The above files still have references to the build directory.
ERROR:     This is possibly an error that should be fixed by unwrapping
ERROR:     the files or adding missing tools to the package makefile!
*** Error code 1

Now, when I add


to the sysutils/radmind Makefile (there is prior art for diff), the 
above reference is unchanged; I need to provide

CONFIGURE_ENV+=		ac_cv_path_echopath=${TOOLS_ECHO:Q}

contrary to what radmind's configure script explains. The main 
difference betweenn the two seems that the diff path is compiled in, 
whereas the echo path is substituted in the "make install" phase. Is 
this an issue I should take upstream?

And what exactly is the meaning of USE_TOOLS here, in addition to 
providing the tool paths to the configure script in environment 
variables? When I leave out the

USE_TOOLS+=	diff echo

nothing changes in the build or install, AFAICS.
