I was trying to rebuild a huge chunk of packages to replace my currently 
aging packages and have been using pkg_comp (with great success I might 

Unfortunately I realized at one point that the "pkg_comp build [list of 
pkgs]" I was using must be interrupted because I had forgotten to get 
it to build my most-wanted packages first.

Silly me, I control-C'd.

All the temporary objs in the workobj directory disappeared.

Now my chroot'd pkg_comp'd beastie thinks it has to rebuild everything 
when it actually doesn't.

My question: How do I tell it *not* to clean up the workobj directory if 
interrupted (or at all)?

Thanks in advance!
