Probably our nightly build system can be cleaned up quite a bit, by
moving in this direction. Back when the 3 compiler stages had to be
built in separate trees, we had a different build.mk in each tree, hence
the separation. This isn't the case any more, so it's possible that we
could just supply a build.mk instead of the current mechanism.
