This assumes that something sets those variables still (autoconf). Does it
not make sense to have a build_PROGRAMS target supportted internally that
just works for compiling these build targetted binaries? I am picturing the

build_PROGRAMS = genkeysyms

The build programs implies noinst, and the compile gets the proper options
without manually overriding each var manually.
