I know.  As part of the changes to support .OBJDIR:, this was changed to
explicitly adding .CURDIR to the search path.

This currently may cause a double lookup in .CURDIR if objdirs don't exist,
which is a miniscule performance hit.  However, I have some partially done
changes that can be finished and rolled in, if desired, which search objdir
(not ".") followed by curdir only if they are not identical.
