I am reminded every night that

  Checking special files and directories.
          type (dir, link)

because I link all of what I once sup'ed and now cvs, onto another disk.

Thus, /usr/doc, /usr/pkgsrc, /usr/src and /usr/xsrc fall into
the same category for me.  Since /usr/doc is unlikely to change
size dramatically, it is less of a worry I admit.

So why do we include a rule

  pkgsrc          type=dir mode=0755 uname=root gname=wheel ignore optional
  ..      #usr/pkgsrc

yet not for usr/doc, usr/src or usr/xsrc ?



I would request that we drop the rule for pkgsrc, or else I
guess to be consistent add rules for the other three...
