The difference is that debugging a broken build using the wrkdir is
*very* common. Before I run out of time working on those things, most of
the time I didn't even bother to extract the distfiles and build patches
directly from the saved work directory. Like I said, every single time
that I had to debug a problem with a successful build, I wanted to have
a full interactive build anyway.
