BTW, any program with bsd makefiles (or for that matter any
well-behaved autoconfed program - but I only really tried gnu hello :)
can be be built outside of the src tree uisng nbmake wrapper.

Our $TOOLDIR + $DESTDIR are only few symlinks short to providing
complete generic cross-build environment:

$ cd $TOOLDIR/$gnu_target_name
$ ln -s $DESTDIR/usr/include sys-include
$ cd lib
$ ln -s $DESTDIR/usr/lib/* .
$ ln -s -f $DESTDIR/lib/* .

and foo--netbsd-gcc &co become selfcontained toolchain (no -isystem
&co required).
