Thanks, I just figured that out from reading the source to change it
to run a command instead. And then I noticed that the man page said
this, but I just didn't see it.

Well, it might make sense to share with the native config (in the
native chroot has same bits case). Then one can pkg_add -u
mismatching packages, etc. I tend to think (being new I'm not sure)
that such sharing is not a good idea. But it's the default - perhaps
the default should be to create a different binary repo for each
It's hard to know where there is space. It might make sense for
maketemplate to take an argument of a dir with lots of space, and
default to putting the binary repo and chroot area there. (I'm not of
the one-huge-/ persuasion, so all of this in /var doesn't fly.)
