I guess there is a way to fetch the file-list from the build process and
pipe its content into `xargs rm' or `xargs chmod 0'.  But that juice is
just not worth the squeeze.  As soon as you upgrade the box, you'll
forget about it and the files will reappear.

One day NetBSD will probably have syspkgs.  Then you'll be able to do
something like `pkg_delete openssh' and remove the old stuff.
