System: NetBSD belltown 5.99.65 NetBSD 5.99.65 (GENERIC) #3: Wed Feb 15 05:59:19 PST 2012 root@belltown:/usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile/GENERIC amd64
Architecture: x86_64

	Using mtree from pkgsrc on Solaris boxes, I've observed
	that it *always* includes time information about the files
	it is reporting on, even when explictly requested to omit
	with "-R time", or "-k md5" (which should *only* use "type"
	and "md5" keywords.

	Note NetBSD basesystem mtree does not exhibit this behaviour.
        $ #ensure you are testing w/ pkgsrc mtree!!
	$ mtree -k md5 -c |  less # observe the "time" keyword still listed.
	$ mtree -R time -c  | less #observe the "time" keyword still listed.
	$ mtree -R size -c | less #observe the "size" keyword _is_ removed.
