Having the ability to do this is great (like I said for the typical
buildworld case).  Having the ability to turn it off is also desirable
to aid in normal development.  Even /usr/obj can be turned off for the
normal case by setting MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX to /bogus (assuming you have
no /bogus).  So too should any new feature like this be.  config
shouldn't be modified to put things in /usr/obj/`pwd`${KERNNAME}, but
instead one should use the -d feature of config in the buildkernel
target to put this into /usr/obj.
