PDE/Build resolves the state once for all environments at the same time.
Previously multi-platform export was done by re-resolving the target for each environment and essentially performing N exports.
In 3.5 we changed export do be a single multi-environment resolution done by PDE/Build.  This
greatly simplified things on build's side for integrating with p2.
