"on the build system" then.

I meant build the tool, then install to /usr/local/bin
I like that for romcc as well.

If that fails, I think it's ok to at least build each of them in
their util/ directory and run them there.

It would be trivial if we did not insist on build directories, but I
don't believe they will go away.

At any rate, isn't it actually very easy to build all neccessary
tools in a common place and then depend on these in each board?

That way they would only be built once.
