I am perfectly happy with that. I was also planning to rename the kernel
directories, so that instead of
This makes it obvious what the heck the kernels are, and makes it easy
to copy several different versions to / for experimenting with different
configs in menu.lst. Comments or objections, anyone?

We should have CONFLICTS right now; we already get in trouble if you
build xentools20 and xentools3 on the same system. So I'll make all of
sysutils/xentools* build a xentools-n.n.n package if nobody thinks it's
going to cause problems. Is there an example somewhere of another group
of packages that does this that I can use as a template?
