When the "base" set is installed, several files in /var that
should be preserved will be replaced. (Even if they are log
files and such, they should probably not be in the base set.)
Do the usual installation of the "base" set.
The split-up stragegy for the var tree appears to be:
base - all directories under var
comp - var/db/libc.tags
games - var/games/* (files only)
etc - all other files under var
It might be better to make a new "var" set instead of putting
the "varying" files in the "etc" set. Comments?
For now, I'll assume the /var files belong in the "etc" set,
and the /var directories belong in the base set.
To consistently implement the above stragegy we need to
move the following files from the "base" to the "etc" set:
