Well, I have been building on OS/X for years, and I have yet to get an
out-of-tree build to work successfully (I only try it sporadically).  So I
don't want to be tied to the directories listed in the CG.  I'd prefer the
environment variable approach.

If the autodetect would be overridden by setting environment variables,
then I see no problem with using autodetect.  Which I think you did below.
