Our build environment explicitly clears the PATH and other important
environment variables. All tools have an explicit relative directory
path in front of them. That way you know for sure that the build
envirnoment -always- uses the compilers, tools, source files, etc. that
_you_ want and the world never changes under your feet, often
unexpectedly :-)
