Sorry about the confusion, they are effectively installed in
/usr/pkg/emul/linux/linux (and /emul/linux is a symbolic link
to /usr/pkg/emul/linux).

Also, they are up to date since it was synced last time the
last week-end.

Looks small :)


I added PKG_DEVELOPER=yes just before or just after linux emulation
installation, but I don't remember exactly. :(

Do you mean in the shell? Or is there a command specific to pkgsrc?

Well, yeah, but I meant about the folders problem. :)
The installation worked after I moved the files in emul/linux/linux
to emul/linux.

If I have enough time I'll retry in a chroot, but I must answer to
some PRs and open others, and test some things I reported earlier.
