The problem I see is that with a brand new destdir, there will be no=20
metalog. So we would move from using command-line arguements to having to=
touch or not touch a file to get a behavior.
I think options 1 & 2 from the original list are great for installs. For=20
building, though, if you set -U, you should get an unprived build. Builds=
w/o -U but with a metalog erroring out would be fine too.
