I'm on now, so I'm not on tech-pkg]

I've got an i386 I've set up for cross-compiling. I'm trying to now
cross-compile packages.

I'm a BIG fan of OBJMACHINE. I want ALL of my directories to have the
machine name (or at lest the architecture) in there - work.i386,

The current make files work fine for that. But recently I ran out of disk
space on my source partition, and so I started using the WRKOBJDIR setup.
Unfortunatly while it makes a link from work.i386 in the package source
area, it makes it to a "work" directory. I want it to make it to a
work.i386 (or work.mac68k etc.) directory. How can I?

Also, the example mk.conf has tabs in the ZIP_ENCRYPTION sample comments.
Should I zap them, or would one of the pkg folks rather do it?

Take care,
