Yes, I build from the top level.  Perhaps we should reexamine this if it is
getting in the way of conveniently rebuilding sub-components and push it down
into the various target tool directories.  

For now, a simple solution might be to put a dummy newlib.h in libc/include
for those tools that use newlib, but don't need to know the configuration info at
build time.
