I've recently started building CURRENT with the mk.conf options:

If you started a "from-scratch" build, I'm unsure what the "left over"
files are - please file a PR for the files if this is the case.

If you modified build options and then did an update build, well,
you'll run into a number of problems, I should think.

I assumed the question referred to the target system after installation,
not the build images.

Exactly :)

The part where I mentioned a comparison with destdir seems to have been snipped which now makes this message rather out of context.

To clarify, I'll restate:

After a ' install=/', having built with the options mentioned above, is there a way to cull the remaining files in the _target_ filesystem that remain from a previous installation that occurred without the options mentioned above?

Well that was a mouthful.

I'd like them to be considered obsolete but I really don't know how that part of postinstall works at all.

I could have used the flist error when building but only thought of that after the fact.
