That makes no sense. The big argument has been that packages should
not go into /usr/local because /usr/local is for something else. If
you symlink do the symlink trick, you only have one real location for
files. If you were to do that, /usr/local or /usr/pkg would be
identical. Might as well make /usr/local the "real" location and
symlink /usr/pkg. What's the difference?
