Is this a problem because /usr/obj doesn't exist or because /usr/src/obj is a 
symlink to /usr/obj? Is it merely that people should ensure the symlink points 
somewhere useful?

I understand why it's a symlink but maybe it should be explained more clearly 
in the documentation, seeing as the /usr/src/obj symlink is created 
automatically, if someone doesn't provide that patch of course :) ... 
autocreation seems to make sense, based on the existence of that symlink.
