	make(1) goofs when constructing file system paths to search for 
	makefiles to be included using the `.include' syntax.

		- when object dirs are in use or nested includes nested
		  includes are being processed involving files not
		  residing in .CURDIR, make(1) constructs path by
		  prepending .CURDIR twice!
		- inclusion of an absolute path name (e.g. /etc/mk.conf)
		  still causes it to be searched first relative to all
		  include directories make knows about.
	run `make -dA' on any Makefile using .include.
	none provided.
	Yet I note that these particular problems (but not those mentioned
	in PR15163) appeared with revision 1.27 of src/usr.bin/make/dir.c

There is now a "toolchain-manager" which is the proper default role 
account for handling problem reports in the toolchain category.
