 Yeah, we don't have one at all, in fact.  The build master does not
 currently do any builds itself, so it never populates ${TOOLDIR}.
 I don't think the use of -S here is really necessary.  I'd vote for simply
 removing it, although we could easily enough work around it by building a
 newer mtree (I was already planning to get those sort changes pulled up)
 and using it instead.
