I think the term "config file" is a problem. I agree that any such file
would be gross. _BUT_ build.sh takes a squillion args and many
folk need/want the same ones everytime they run it. Having build.sh
[ -s $rc ] && . $rc
doesn't seem like a bad idea. As for /etc/build.conf - I think that
_is_ a bad idea.
