Re: [issue730] Latest DEVEL still reflects old pkg_* paths

:Quoting Matthew Dillon <dillon@apollo.backplane.com>:
:>     If we don't have a working installer by wednesday then
:>     I will have to take the non-LUA version that we have from the last
:>     release, bring it into our own CVS, and make it suitable for this
:>     release.
:I put the bsdinstaller under src/contrib, and linked in a `make iso` target to
:src/Makefile (it just cds and calls nrelease/ make installer_release -- thanks
:Justin).  I also tweaked the nrelease Makefile to build contrib/bsdinstaller
:instead of just copying the root skeleton files over.
:`make iso` is building now, but I'm not far enough along the process to gauge
:its worth (currently at gnu/usr.bin/cc34/ and started ~ 5 hours ago).  
:I'm also
:not sure if it will finish by Wednesday.  If someone with a quicker build
:platform could try the patch below and provide feedback (and hopefully an iso
::-D), I would appreciate.
:Good night,

    You must have a slow machine, but don't worry.  I think you are on
    the right track though I have my reservations about trying to use a
    lua-integrated version for this release.

    I will start playing with your patch just to see how easy or difficult
    it winds up being.  I'm not patricularly concerned about a little
    extra bloat for this release since we have a ton of space on the CD,
    but I definitely don't want to get bogged down in having to have 
    a dozen packages installed on the CD just to support the installer
    (not having tried the patch yet I don't know what the requirements
    are, if any).
