I thought the obfuscation was intentional as very few people should be doing 
a 'make world' without a custom DESTDIR these days.  Certainly people new to 
FreeBSD shouldn't be doing it; only those with the command hardwired into 
their brains.  We've had buildworld/installworld since 2.2.5 (or 2.2.6) I 
think as I've only had to do a 'make world' once to go from 2.2.2 to 
2.2.6. :)
