There's been debate about this before, but not a lot of clear direction. I
tend to agree that build.sh may be best explicitly overriding mk.conf,
rather than letting mk.conf override. This is something I might change in
the near future (but will require a pretty loud "HEADS UP" in case anyone
has come to depend on the current scheme).
