Add blueprint_go_binary for user-run tools Move these tools from $buildDir/.bootstrap/bin to $buildDir/bin (configurable by the primary builder). Also delay building them until the main stage, and give them a phony target "blueprint_tools".
Blueprint is a meta-build system that reads in Blueprints files that describe modules that need to be built, and produces a Ninja manifest describing the commands that need to be run and their dependencies. Where most build systems use built-in rules or a domain-specific language to describe the logic for converting module descriptions to build rules, Blueprint delegates this to per-project build logic written in Go. For large, heterogenous projects this allows the inherent complexity of the build logic to be maintained in a high-level language, while still allowing simple changes to individual modules by modifying easy to understand Blueprints files.
