That's fine with me, but why is this different from the
--include-env-var case?  You had wanted different environment
variables to be searched for the different tools (autoconf, autotest,
etc) so that they searched different directories.  If using
tool-specific subdirectories is sufficient, why not just use a single
environment variable for the search path and use tool-specific
subdirectories there as well?
