Yes, there were - the concern (for me at the time) was violation of
POLS, maybe it'd be more acceptable these days.  It's still my biggest
regret we didn't put it under LOCALBASE by default when we first set
things up, but we had no idea what we were starting then.

Maybe we can plan for that after 2009Q3 is cut?

        I think that would be quite excellent. What would be the best
        plan? Leave PKG_DBDIR as a compile time option, or even have a
        build option which lets the tools check both locations and use
        the one which is marked as the 'newest'?
