I would rather like to keep /usr/pkg shareable(*) by all machines.
A database to me would be a per machine file. Especially with large
databases it would be a waste of space to duplicate them.
[(*) I rdist /usr/pkg around, i.e. multiple copies. It is also a saver
when your old config file gets overwritten when upgrading a package.]
