All ahead full!
I do think that packaged base is going to force us to revisit things
quite a bit in that you won't necessarily just install the equivalent
of base.txz all the time. Long term I do think that is the solution
for folks wanting more fine-grained control over disk space as well
as the ability to "fault in" symbols on demand.
For whatever we are going to do for the graybeards like myself that
will still use make, I think that the only knob you would need for 4
is runtime vs everything else where runtime is libs + rtld. Anything
finer-grained than that should be handled by pkg(8) instead. For my
part I already set WITH_DEBUG_FILES=yes in /etc/src.conf on just about
all of my boxes and VMs (head or stable).
