Clumsy only because it requires two steps - one an addition to
config/chroot_local-includes and the second to edit the finished system
after boot up.  Some of these edits are not preserved after a shutdown
and reboot.  

I was wrong about xorg.conf.wacom. The file was in
/etc/X11 of the finished system so it was only the package versions of
resolve.conf and interfaces which were not overwritten.

It was by studying the manual that I learned how to do this.  I thought
it said that the package configuration files would be overwritten after
the package was installed.  Apparently I was mistaken.  In fact, the
.bashrc file I put in /home/user was preserved but rather Sun
Microsystems Setup added a section to the end of my file.
