I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but conceptually right now obj is intermediate files for build, and lib and tools contain the actual files intended to be installed. The one exception to this is headers, which are split between the $(srcdir)/include, $(srcdir)/arch/$(ARCH)/bits, and obj/include/bits, making the latter the one installed file from obj. I don't think we have to resolve this at the same time as out-of-tree, but I'd moderately prefer putting all the installable files under one directory structured just like an install prefix, to make it easy to use them in-place without installing. This worked historically with the in-tree build thanks to the (very problematic, otherwise) bits symlink. Rich
