OK, Greg, you win, i am withdrawing from this thread. It is
clear to me now that you have no interest in accepting what i am
saying and simply stating whether you disagree with it or not.
You would rather try to convince me i am saying something i am
not. Fine, have fun, i'm done.
For the last time, i don't care if we have a separate /usr/X11R6
or not. You can divide the system into as many separate prefixes
as you want and it still doesn't change my point. I do NOT want
packages in the same prefix as non-packages. That is all.
If you had actually bothered to read any of my posts you wouldn't
keep telling me to use xpkgwedge because you would see that i do
know about it and have always used it. My objection is to the
default behavior of cramming packages into /usr/X11R6 when that
is not their natural habitat.
Of course, if someone who actually *worked* on pkgsrc and
xpkgwedge feels like discussing this, i'm all ears. Windbags who
have no interest in hearing my question much less answering it
need not reply.
