	the build process builds a ./var/db/libc.tags in the comp.tgz
	set with absolute path names from the build machine.   this 
	results in lines like this:

yp_unbind       /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE/src/lib/libc/yp/yplib.c    /^yp_unbind(dom)$/
yperr_string    /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE/src/lib/libc/yp/yperr_string.c     /^yperr_string(incode)$/
ypmatch_add     /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE/src/lib/libc/yp/yp_match.c /^ypmatch_add(map, key, keylen, val, vallen)$/
ypmatch_find    /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE/src/lib/libc/yp/yp_match.c /^ypmatch_find(map, key, keylen, val, vallen)$/
ypprot_err      /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE/src/lib/libc/yp/ypprot_err.c       /^ypprot_err(incode)$/

	I cannot see how this is useful, since most people will not
	have a /home/builds/ab/netbsd-3-0-1-RELEASE directory!


	build NetBSD release.


	- sed it at build time into /usr/src and assume everyone is going 
	  to have a /usr/src directory (or symlink) that points to the 
	  right place.


	- put relative paths in the file and have some sort of
	  environment option that you can point at the source tree?
