I think I'd like the "buildid" to default to "eb" or "el" in these
cases, unless the user overrides buildid with -B, in which case we
can assume they know what they're doing.

Defaulting the buildid would not only give you the wrapper suffix you're
looking for, but also can influence objdirs, and is testable in mk.conf.
