It's not a problem in the sense that it cannot be done, but
just think about having to share a machine with a bunch of
people and you don't own the machine.
You quickly realize that without MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX or with
files in /etc (like /etc/make.conf) that you can't tweak,
you quick;y realize how error prone everything and how
much time you end up wasting.
