You might want to try out the Configure -Dmksymlinks option.  If your
build directory is not the source code directory, the mksymlinks will
cause Configure to create a symlink forest for you.  Handy for having
a read-only source code directory while doing several builds somewhere
else.  I will also try introducing Stephen Zander's tweaks soon which
will allow the same thing but in a different way, without symlinks at all --
assuming your make is feeling coöoperative.

Changes since the last:
