+    For each file found, we copy it to a file of the same name but with an added

+    <quote>/tools</quote> to every instance of <quote>/lib/ld</quote>,
+    <quote>/lib64/ld</quote> or <quote>/lib32/ld</quote>, while the second one
+    replaces hard-coded instances of <quote>/usr</quote>. Then we add our define
+    statements which alter the include search path to the end of the file. Finally,
+    we use <command>touch</command> to update the timestamp on the copied files.
+    When used in conjunction with <command>cp -u</command>, this prevents unexpected
+    changes to the original files in case the command is inadvertently run twice.
