While we're at it it would be nice if pkg_add could be told to not add
'shareables files' (e.g. /usr/pkg/share/...).
As the purpose of xxx/share is to be shearable across different archs,
one could really want to install binary packages without this (think at
theses sparcs or sun3 or macs with really small disks).
