OK, given the ammount of stuff I needed to do, that was just not
feasible. I found out how to do it, and axiom--BSD--1 is now
near-identical to axiom--main--1.

I'm a heavy user of CVS, and one of the repository maintainers for
the FreeBSD sources, so I know it pretty well. Some of the things
you can't do easily in Arch are slowing me down a bit, but I'm
getting there.
