The contents of `build.args` are passed to `build.cmd` as command-line arguments. An example, from llvm-gcc42:

build.env \
    LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib" \
    CPATH="/usr/include" \
    PATH="/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin" \
    LANGUAGES="c,c++,objc,obj-c++" \
    AR_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/ar \
    AS_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/as \
    LD_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/ld \
    NM_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/nm \
    OBJDUMP_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/objdump \
    RANLIB_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/ranlib \
    STRIP_FOR_TARGET=${prefix}/bin/strip \
    DSYMUTIL_FOR_HOST=${prefix}/bin/dsymutil \
    RANLIB_FOR_HOST=${prefix}/bin/ranlib \
    STRIP_FOR_HOST=${prefix}/bin/strip \
    OTOOL=${prefix}/bin/otool \
