What Martin said.  For most targets op eventually (after
doing sanity checks, building tools etc) results in just
${makewrapper} ${op} where makewrapper is your

Just in case, beware though that makewrapper hardcodes your objdir,
destdir and releasedir settings, so if you want different people to
use the same "permanent" tooldir, you'll need to arrange things so
