Please don't use environment variables for configuration. One of the
goals of BBv2 is to not rely on the fragile environment for such things.
Please use a command line option instead, like "--build-dir=...". And
there's no point in creating a subdir in the indicated directory the
user is will end up creating a separate one anyway. And this makes it
functionally equivalent to what BBv1 does.
