I hate to do this, but "me too".
a) If I understand correctly, these are Linux executables - they
should not be in the NetBSD tree. i.e. They would not be able to
run native on NetBSD without Linux emulation, therefore they are
b) We should be trying to keep things in close proximity, to enable
people to find related things. Telling them to use pkg_info -L is
not really an option for locating files. Not unless you add pkg_info
-L support into every file manager...
c) There's "prior art".
