release/Makefile had a similar issue when I've been working on
a cross support for it (both cross-release and cross-platform).
The release.5 still has to run the build-tools target again as
it has no idea what tools contribute to the build-tools list.

Another pessimization is with release.3, where we do a second
buildworld pass with SUBDIR_OVERRIDE, but this pessimization
is for a good reason.
