Sorry, I made the mistake of looking at this bikeshed and lost my nerve.
The patch I was going to commit was:
.. but this *totally* breaks installworld due to *BAD* brokenness in

I can deal with /usr/local and /usr/X11R6 recompiles, but when the installworld
dies because the dynamic linked copy of /usr/bin/* in /tmp/XXX/* gets the
/usr/lib/libc.so.5 clobbered and explodes, leaving a 100% totally screwed up
system, then I begin to think we are doing something wrong.

If it wasn't for that, I could deal with a /usr/local and /usr/X11R6/lib

I wish the people who say 'dont bump libraries at any cost' would fix the
build so it was possible for an installworld to complete with an
incompatable libc change.
