In short, no. The MLBasis path variables aren't available in the
(limited) CM support.

You might try the 'cm2mlb' tool that is described at the bottom of
In the MLton sources, it is available at <src>/util/cm2mlb.
It will properly translate $/basis.cm and $/smlnj-lib.cm entries in .cm
files to $(SML_LIB)/basis/basis.mlb and
$(SML_LIB)/smlnj-lib/Util/smlnj-lib.mlb, etc. It shouldn't be too hard to
use a Makefile to keep the .cm and .mlb files in sync.
