I will see what happens when I do that.. as I remember it did
something to break the building of world and I think port building as
this /exports also holds /usr/obj /usr/src and /usr/ports they are
symlinks to here.
Again from what I remember having nosuid and/or noexec on /usr/obj and/
or /usr/ports was a 'problem' as well..
