Thanks.


You mean make /usr/local a symlink to either /opt/sfw or /usr/sfw,
whichever one I have?

Well, probably due to answering some question wrong (or maybe right?),
I have *both*.

Perhaps best to make /usr/local a symlink to something on
a different partition, and keep them all separate,
so that the companion-disk stuff stays in an sfw-dir,
and the stuff I build can go in the /usr/local,
where so much stuff still seems to want to live.
