my thought goes like:
* source tree can be shared between machines.
* you might want to have a overrides of your "source tree defaults" in
a machine-local place.
* so, /etc/build.conf should probably override .../src/build.conf.
* however, it would probably be nice to be able to do "pure" builds,
i.e. that avoid using anything but the .../src/build.conf one. (the
theory being, if it's in the source tree, it's part of your pure
(personally, having a file like that in /etc isn't so important to me,
i'd never use it. but if it's supported, i'd want a way to make sure
that for my source tree, it's _not_ used.)
