Does stubdom build import config/Tools.mk? I thought it was only used to
build the tools directory. If that's the case I don't think it will
break anything, since we define a new variable $FETCHER, that shouldn't
be used anywhere else, so the rest will continue to use the hardcoded
wget, or whatever it was using prior to this patch.
