(In reply to Mikhail Teterin from comment #4)
As far as I can see, pkg doesn't really support hard links. And with some
further thinking: do we even guarantee a file system with hard link support?
Think NFS - that's a whole can of worms on it's own - which some poeple seem to
use for their /usr/local.
And then: we're talking about a few hundred kB in a 200MB install size port.
I'm not going to spent any more time than this note on that.
