System: NetBSD this 1.5X NetBSD 1.5X (THAT) #72: Fri Aug 31 18:15:16 EDT 2001     root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/THAT i386
sh-utils-2.0        GNU shell utilities
id-utils-3.2        The classic Berkeley gid/lid tools for looking up variables in code


	id-utils installs a womderful program called gid that is
terribly useful.  sh-utils installs the gnu version of id (which is
worthless to me) as gid in the same place.


	cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/id-utils; make install && make clean
	cd /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/sh-utils; make install && make clean
	===> Registering installation for sh-utils-2.0
	pkg_create: Overwriting /usr/pkg/bin/gid - pkg id-utils-3.2 bogus/conflicting?


	either of:

	(1) don't install the gnu id program at all

	(2) install gnu programs (like findutils, inetutils,
	sharutils, diffutils, fontutils, plotutils, termutils,
	fileutils, sh-utils, textutils, etc) under something like
	/usr/pkg/gnu instead (binutils is already under /usr/pkg/cross
	and id-utils doesn't conflict with anything in the base system)

maybe there's a way to do (2) already, but i didn't see it quickly.
