According to the manpage, if you remove -U it doesn't create new
directories or symlinks. At least that's how I interpret it. The whole
purpose of running mtree is the creation of directories, so it's a minor
discomfort when it doesn't do that :-)

If we intend to upgrade groff(1) once a week, no. If we do it once a
year, yes.

It's is a long list of directories and I prefer we do not need to sum
them up in src/Makefile.inc1. On the other hand, I also don't want to
use mtree.

This is what I'm thinking about:

1.  Determine if there's a real bootstrapping problem
2.  If there's no bootstrapping issue, goto pub :-)
3.  Add list of directories to src/Makefile.inc1
4.  Write script to parse mtree files for use in build
5.  If not possible, reconsider using mtree
6.  else, replace lists by running the script.
