I didn't expect that you would be building those same packages in
parallel. I didn't think that was what pkg-user about - am I wrong? I
was simply talking about having one build of a program built and
installed one place, and then having another build of the same program
(perhaps with different options) installed to another directory, so you
could analyze the differences.

I can't - I haven't used or looked at it yet. So I was going to hold off
my judgment on it till I've tried it. Hint hint ;) No use spouting out
my opinion about it till I know what I'm talking about.
