Does _all_ its functionality have to be preserved? Would it be
acceptable to have the "sanity check", when it fails, disable BSDOBJDIR
handling (as if `pwd` didn't begin with /usr/src) rather than bombing
Also, it's functionality may be yankable for the system in question;
how would I go about doing that? Or is that too complicated to explain
