Yes, but make must also be able to find the tools, hence they are in the 
path (I am using Linux's binfmt_misc with the appropriate settings so 
that the programs are directly executable).

If I had the source, it would already be running natively. However, in 
this case I don't - the compiler is for a DSP, and is most definitely 
Closed Source....

The project is a rather large one, comprised of over 9000 files in many 
different directories. Having the tools always in CWD isn't an option.

Great! One down, one to go. I'll add that to the initial setup shell script.

Perhaps, one fine day when I'm not trying to get a 160G drive to play 
nice in my computer, and I've taken the time to get ADPCM working in 
Wine, I can add some sort of additional path environment logic in.

And **I** would actually rather release under LGPL, thankyouverymuch.
