I have to be honest on this one. I'm not crazy about the druntime build system. I know there are a lot of other more important thing to work on, but I can't help myself, and if I'm not comfortable with the build system, I get too much distracted, so I have no choice but to try to improve it a little =)

First, I don't like the HOME environment variable override hack in build-dmd.sh (I won't talk about the Windows build because I don't have Windows, so I can't test it).

So I've made a simple patch to tackle this. It just adds a dmd.conf configuration file in each directory owning a makefile. I think it's a fair price to pay adding this extra files to be hable to just use make and get rid of the build-dmd.sh script.

I've added a ticket on this and another related ticket with a patch too.
