	It's not a sym-link, it's an evnironment variable:


	This was done because certain large ports (e.g. libreoffice) were 
eating up all the free space on /usr.  So I pointed the work directory 
to /data, which has 200+ gbytes free.	This works fine except is rare 
cases like this one.
	So ... how do I go about further diagnosing the breakage and getting 
that to {maintainer, pkg-ng team} who can Do the Right Thing?
