Why's that even necessary?  Why not write some a tla wrapper script
that detects when you're running it from $BUILD_DIR/$SUB_DIR and first
cd's to $SRC_DIR/$SUB_DIR?  Or (what I've chosen to do) write a build
script that first changes to the appropriate build directory before
running any of your build commands.
