No... I do -D /usr/src/dest build -D /usr/src/dest install=/

Did that a while back, had some bad crashes (but got VERY lucky; lost a few
hundred files in /usr/src, which were all CVS directories, and a handful of
files in /home, which don't seem to have been anything useful).

The main killer for me is that today is the first day in two weeks I've been
able to get 'dump' to run.
