OK, obviously, as with any feature, there are some people who use it.

How about this:

because of the fact that (unless the builder builds from the same
place where the user happens to have their source tree located), the
libc.tags file will not be correct, it should be disabled by default,
with a mk.conf variable that can be enabled to build/install it.

I'd say that that variable should be "MKCTAGS".

That way, if you stuff 'MKCTAGS=yes' into your mk.conf, and build the
system, you get them, otherwise you don't.

FYI, based on the libc tags files, the set of paths which seem to have
been used to build 1.4.2 are:

	/usr/src			(12)
	/usr/local/1.4.x/src		(1)
	/u1/NetBSD-1.4.2/usr/src	(1)
	/s/src				(1)
	/sd1f/netbsd-1.4/src		(1)
