I personally don't currently use USR_OBJMACHINE either, but that's only
because I don't currently do multiple cross-builds.  I wouldn't need to
use it even if I were doing multiple cross-builds, though it is easier
to do so than it is to change BSDOBJDIR for every build.

So are you implying that you really do keep your objects in the same
place as your sources?  If so, why?

Do you equally not like using BSDOBJDIR?  If so, why?

I hope you don't try to use BSDOBJDIR and OBJMACHINE together!
