Yes, it is ugly, and at the moment, there is also stuff in
/usr/bsd/libexec, /usr/bsd/libdata and /usr/bsd/share. Until I get the
kernel to build with the system binutils and gcc, and get the FreeBSD
versions out of there, it's going to be a mess. After that, it might
become possible to clean it up.
I think using /usr/bsd, as I do now, is fairly simple. Given the
complexity of the source package's build system, I'd like to keep it
simple. (Keep in mind, this is only required to build the freebsd
source package. You don't need it for anything else.) I think I really
just need to find an FHS-compliant directory to put this stuff in.
