Another question: the FreeBSD porters' handbook requires you to create
a directory tree first in your temporary install directory when
building pkg-plist, and add any newly created directories to pkg-plist
with a @dirrm -- is this really necessary?  It seems to me that we can
just make pkg_delete (or its successor) remove any empty directories
it finds after deleting files, including /usr/local/share or other
"standard" places -- there's no reason to have these directories if
there's nothing in them.

If we use /usr/dflypkg/* (or else) and map that to /usr/local (or else), a pkg_delete will just remove the dir in /usr/dflypkg. Furthermore, we got a MTREE file for /usr/local too.
