personally I'm agnostic here - I'll have a custom build setup either way - however:

I could see a few reasons for this -

1) pkgsrc 'stuff' stays on the same partition
2) makes it easier to port stuff - as you just cd up or
   down a few ./..'s - e.g. diff file file > ../../patches/patch-q
   cp hackedonfile ../../ for safe keeping, etc
   although, a few shell bits in ~/.profile sort that out..
3) less confusing for new folks

definately understand the desire to keep all 'build' stuff in /usr/obj too..

plus it's 'how things have always been done' (TM) right?

ok. yeah.
