When I have done this, I used both ways depending on what was
convenient. I have linked something like /usr/ports to /usr2/ports and
etc. I have also created a /us2/ and mounted that in fstab as
/usr/ports. I have done the fstab mount almost universally when it
comes to /usr/src and /usr/obj. They (including the system) all are on
different HDs and controllers. They are mounted in fstab.
