Curt Sampson sez:
 * tree (i.e., forcing a separate obj hierarchy with symlinks in the
 * source tree). While we're at it, we might as well get rid of intermixed
 * architecture object trees. In other words, for source directory
 * 	/usr/src/usr.sbin/config
 * We will have object files go in to
 * 	/usr/obj.sparc/usr.sbin/config
 * We will *not* be allowed to use (any longer)
 * 	/usr/src/usr.sbin/config/obj
 * 	/usr/src/usr.sbin/config/obj.sparc
 * 	/usr/obj/usr.sbin/config.sparc
 * I don't know what people think of this. I don't see this as any
 * loss myself.

What I'm wondering is why we didn't do this sooner!  /usr/obj.$ARCH
makes much more sense -- it's a lot less fragmented, certainly!
