Just to let you know, pkgsrc is being used more and more on non-NetBSD
platforms which may not offer filesystems that support the "no dump"
attribute. I use it on many Linux systems (without any chflags)

Linux uses chattr(1) for setting filesystem attributes. And it uses "+d"
to set this.

I do agree that backing up the work directories is usually not needed. I
have been using WRKOBJDIR to use /usr/tmp/pkgsrc for my work.
