Description Peter Jeremy 2012-11-02 22:50:00 UTC
	"make universe" creates separate logs for each target and
	architecture but these are all hard-wired to be in the tree
	being built.  This prevents the use of "make universe" with
	a read-only root (in my case, I wanted to use a ro NFS mount),

Fix: The following patch creates a new "LOGDIR" variable and creates
	all the "make universe" logfiles in that directory.  If not
	specified, it defaults to "${.CURDIR}" for consistency with the
	existing behaviour.
How-To-Repeat: 	Mount a source tree read-only and run "make universe".  It will
	report lots of failures like:
cannot create _.amd64.buildworld: Read-only file system
