The mk.conf knobs that turn off catpages and other things work
pretty well, and the distribution process puts shared things into
a separate tar-ball, doesn't it?  Gary could just build one dist
with everything turned on, and the others with man pages and
catpages turned off.  I've been cross-building my firewall box
with a whole bunch of things turned off, and apart from some
warnings late in the set building stage, everything works nicely.

Now, if only I could figure out how to cross-build the couple of
pkgsrc entries that that box needs.  Bound to be possible...
