I've been following this saga (on irc and here) as much as I have time
for, and I can't escape the feeling that it is the directory structure
at fault somehow, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

I never (ever) build from /usr/src or use /usr/obj as an object dir
(they're both empty dirs on all my machines).  But one thing that is
always true for me is that the source dir and its related object dir are
siblings in the same parent dir.  That is, it's always

Given that we have (or at least had at one time) some of those magical
"..." paths that cause bmake to search up the hierarchy for its .mk
files, I wonder if an odd relationship between src and obj dir confuses
it, or if it somehow wanders into a wrong src tree while searching?
