I don't really see how the commit message and the commit contents match up 
here - or I don't really understand what's going on.

What's symbols.mak, why hasn't that been needed before? The commit message 
talks about setting things (variables?) via makefiles instead of 
environment variables - I would expect it to be things like CC for the 
cross target and such, but then the commit tries to override autotools
