Add a script, to "rm -rf build/*-*". What it does is fairly trivial, but not necessarily obvious, and it's an excuse to add a big comment explaining things.

# This script compiles stuff under the final system, using distcc to call out
# to the cross compiler.  It calls run-from-build with a here document.

# Note that the first line of the script is a few spaces followed by a comment
# character.  This gives some harmless data for the linux boot process (serial
# initialization) to consume and discard before it gets to the command prompt.
# (The comment character is just so you can see how much got eaten.)

# If you cat your own script into, you probably also need
# to start with a line of spaces like that.  Just FYI.
