Actually, the bootstrap bmake build works Hard not to create any .o's in
non-temporary space.  It tries to compile with cwd=/tmp (I've changed that
to use /tmp/$$, to be added in my next commit), using TMPDIR as an override,
and then nukes all the .o's once compiled (most sane compilers won't even
create .o's in the cwd).  The cc command invoked to build bmake uses "-o
$TOOLDIR/bin/bmake" so as to compile right to the destination.

This way MKOBJ and MKOBJDIRS can be relegated to mk.conf without harm.
