 > Are you able to reproduce this in a build of -current?
 I have not tried.  It has been at least a decade since I tried to build
 -current (specifically, since core let GPLv3 code into the tree).  I
 have built 8.* and 9.* a few times for work, but I don't think I've
 ever tried to install from -D and -O directories which are mounted RO.
 I don't think I've ever tried this since I sent the PR, not even with
 That said, if it's not reproducible in -current by doing the analog of
 what I sketch in the PR (do a -D ... -O ... -x -U build, then,
 with the -D and -O directories on a read-only filesystem, try to
 install into somewhere RW), it can probably be considered fixed.
 This strikes me as a practical issue more because it would likely break
 multiple parallel installs from shared -D and -O build directories than
 because it breaks installs with a filesystem mounted RO.
