NetBSD uses /var/chroot/$BLAH. Singular, plural.... whatever.

I don't like that either as /home may be an NFS mount used by multiple=20=
machines. /var is pretty likely to be a machine local mount as it holds=20=
things like /var/run, the rpm database and logs. When logs are=20
coalesced onto a single machine, it's generally through syslogd.
