       bld.conf - Configuration file for BLD


       bld.conf  consists  of  lines used to set various configuration options
       for bld.  The lines are processed in order of appearance.  Options  set
       via  bld.conf  are overriden by bld command line options.  If two lines
       assign different values to the same variables, the last is used.  Blank
       lines and lines beginning with a ‘#’ are ignored.

       bld.conf lines have the following format:

          variable = value
