Yeah, I can't think of a reason why we would want to mix and match. That
definitely wasn't the goal anyway.
I have a vague memory of --prefix=$(SOLARVER)/external being a "good
thing" for some concrete reason. If I'm right, then it'll be quickly
apparent that its a good thing to do :-). So I wouldn't worry about it.
If its a "good thing to do" it'll lend itself as the fix automatically
as you build through them.
