Uh, why? If you support a --setup option, why append anything at all? It makes
better sense to me if the option simply specifies the full path name to the
alternative file.

I don't see any benefit with automatically appending $targetos to the name.

I would prefer the default setup file name to remain, and allow the option to
change it to whatever you please.

I agree with that goal. I think I could fix some of my builds to use the same
source tree too once this fix is made.
