So, one will no longer be able to both set BSDSRCDIR in /etc/mk.conf
and use <> outside the source tree to compile with
native tools?  That seems like it's changing BSDSRCDIR from
"hey, here's where the BSD source lives if you want to know about
that kinda thing" to "by golly, whatever you think you're building,
nevermind, it's really BSD, and it must USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN."
