Re: chlamydia inconsistency? part II.

    A couple of things note when messing with pkgsrc:

    * Remember that /usr/pkg also tends to contain configuration files that
      you may have edited, in /usr/pkg/etc, so don't accidently blow away
      stuff you need.

    * When doing major messing around with pkgsrc it might be prudent to
      create a chroot'd copy of the system and do the messing around
      inside the chroot instead of on the main system's directory tree.

      It's easiest to just cpdup a copy of various things into the chroot,
      and remember to do the second mount_devfs.  A more complex scenario
      would involve a mix of cpdup and mount_null null mounts to construct
      the chroot environment.

      Having a lot of disk space helps matters too, particularly when
      playing with pkgsrc.
