I agree about both options but just as likely whether it be libmap.conf
or a path in far distant directory usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/* are
equally just as easy to be forgotten IMO. Though I do not know off the
top of my head whether portmaster or any of the other utils look at
removing files from the compat/pkg directory either which is why I state
the previous.

This brought me to the thought of a periodic check that would check for
the existence of libmap.conf and usr/local/compat/pkg and display the
contents or just warn of those being there and possibly populated.

Anyhow regards,
