Build Hacks
I really love Derek's Build tool.  I started playing
around with it and performed two minor hacks:

1. Build now searches the source directory for
build.cfg in addition to other directories.  This
allows me to customize my build config on a
per-project basis.
(added one line to ProcessBuildConfig())

2. I alphabetized the -help text and made it easier
to read (IMO).

I don't know how to contact Derek, so I thought I'd
offer up my changes here.  Just use my modified
build.d, which you can download here:

http://studiotekne.com/build.d

in place of the one that comes with the
build v.2.09 source distribution, which you can
download here:

http://trac.dsource.org/projects/build/

Regards,
Garett

He'll probably see it here, or you can post in his build forum

Either that, or you can add a ticket (of type 'enhancement') to his Trac 
environment at dsource.org:

http://trac.dsource.org/projects/build/newticket

You can even attach your patch (a SVN diff), or just build.d

Cheers,
Brad
