How does buildworld search the right directories for

for a cross compile project)?
heh, hand me a cluebat to hit myself :), found it:
calling /usr/bin/ld --verbose shows /usr/lib as search path. calling
/usr/obj/usr/src/world_i386/usr/bin/ld --verbose *also* showed /usr/lib
as search path.
Why? because ld is objformat'ed and thus calls
/usr/libexec/binutils212/elf/ld, not minding the changed binary path.
And it seems those binaries care about their location to determine
which path to search.
so setting OBJFORMAT_PATH to the proper location helps these tools
finding the right path.
JFYI, of course
