Is cross-world building broken?

So, DESTDIR works fine if you use it for the install phases. If you
use it for the build phases, it confuses things.

I'm not sure why this has been working for the past 12 months or so.

I've modified my build scripts to:

* Add DESTDIR to installkernel, installworld, distribution
* Not set DESTDIR for buildworld, buildkernel.

And that seems to work.

Thanks for the advice everyone.
