  Modified files:
    usr.sbin/pkg_install/create create.h main.c perform.c 
  Add a -n option to pkg_create(1), to inhibit duplicate work.
  When run without this option, multiple runs of `pkg_create -Rb' will
  recreate common packages multiple times.  This can take a lot of time
  for large packages.  With the -n option `pkg_create -b' checks with
  stat(2) and skips packages that already exist.
  Note that this may *not* be safe of the existing output file is not
  really a package, or if it has been corrupted, modified or otherwise
  tinkered with between subsequent pkg_create runs.  For this and POLA
  reasons, the default behavior is to *rebuild* the packages, and the -n
  option can be used when we know it is `safe' to run in no-regenerate
