I agree that it should be setup that way on default installs. I don't
know why NetBSD defaults to wanting to put the work directories

I could see a few reasons for this -
personally I'm agnostic here -
I'll have a custom build setup either way -
1) pkgsrc 'stuff' stays on the same partition
2) makes it easier to port stuff - as you just cd up or
down a few ./..'s - e.g. diff file file > ../../patches/patch-q
cp hackedonfile ../../ for safe keeping, etc
although, a few shell bits in ~/.profile sort that out..
3) less confusing for new folks
definately understand the desire to keep all 'build' stuff in /usr/obj too..
plus it's 'how things have always been done' (TM) right?
