Can you explain what the need is for all that?  What's preventing you
from writing a make file to do them all individually?  You build them
individually for security updates anyway, right? I'm sorry, but I
don't see where the need for all this complex /usr/obj stuff and
building another compiler just for buildworld.  If you're not cross
compiling where is the need?  It just doesn't make any sense.  If you
could clear this up, I'd appreciate it.
