The fbsd manual states in section 24.7 Rebuilding "world":
in subsection 24.7.6 Remove /usr/obj
Some files below /usr/obj may have the immutable flag set (see chflags(1) for more information) which must be removed first.
# cd /usr/obj
# chflags -R noschg *
I've never seen a file under /usr/obj/ with immutable flag set.
Why would there be object files with immutable flag set?
Is this step really necessary?
