System: NetBSD 5.1_STABLE NetBSD 5.1_STABLE (NBMAIL) #2: Mon Jun 11 07:45:45 UTC 2012 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
	It would be nice if pkg_comp had a simple mechanism to enable builds
	with pkgtools/autoswc.  This requires a configuration setting and a
	hook to run the autoswc configuration on startup automatically.

	Maybe there should even be some support to specify an autoswc
	configuration file that lives outside of the chroot so that the things
	to cache would be configured once and persist across rebuilds of the
	chroot.  But this is not high priority: we can use the default
	configuration file as a first iteration, which should "just work".

	The goal of this change is to make builds of multiple packages faster
	by avoiding repeated runs of very similar configure scripts.  This is
	interesting for slow platforms.

Take this.  Filed it as a to-do item for myself.
