Making syspkgs and makefs play nice together
I want to be able to build filesystems from syspkgs/pkgsrc format
packages and there are a few things that need to be ironed out before
this can happen.
I want to add an unprivileged mode to pkg_add that will probably be
enabled automatically if you aren't running it as root. In this mode
it will not try and set any file permissions.
I also want to eliminate all @exec PLIST commands from syspkgs.
syspkgs only uses them for creating file system objects that the PLIST
can't otherwise describe (probably). This really isn't the right way
to do it, and in general it won't work for me. I think I can eliminate
them all by back-porting/pulling-up the implementation of the @pkgdir
I can then write an AWK program to convert a package's PLIST into an
mtree specification for makefs.
