On 09-Jan-99 Curt Sampson spoke unto us all:
# When you pkg_add, if there is no /usr/pkg existing, it creates a
# symlink of /usr/pkg -> /usr.
# Nothing else changes.
Whoooo.. thats scarry.. meaning if the user doesn't manually create
/usr/pkg.. it installs packages in /usr??
I dont like that idea one bit.. no commercial operating system does that..
Even if you all ignore me.. I might plead with you to warn the user loudly
that this is about to occur, and give him a chance to bail before the damage is
