I'm not entirely sure of the implications of this, or if I should not have
expected it to just work.

In 1.6 release sets /usr/include/machine is a directory, when overlaying new
-current world (in which /usr/include/machine is a symlink) the directory
is never replaced with the symlink and as a result nothing in machine/* is
ever updated.

Perhaps this is something that should be in UPDATING if it's not going to be
magically handled when unpacking -current.


+ Install 1.6 from sets on
+ Extract some recent -current sets to /
+ Notice that /usr/include/machine/* is not updated.
