ru>   Add the NO_INCS knob to bsd.prog.mk and bsd.lib.mk to not include
ru>   bsd.incs.mk, and use it when installing 32-bit compat libraries
ru>   on amd64.  This causes it to *not* overwrite native headers with
ru>   i386 versions, which was the case with <fenv.h> and <vgl.h>.

ru> This commit fixes a breakage but also raises the following question.
ru> If we don't install headers, do we need anything except 32-bit rtld
ru> and shared libraries?  Currently, we also install .a libraries, .o
ru> objects, and some data files.

Why not install all 32 bit stuff under /compat/freebsd-i386/?

We currently use directory /usr/lib32 for 32 bit libraries,
/usr/libexec/ld-elf32.so.1 for the 32 bit rtld(8) and have no place to
keep 32-bit headers.
