Um, the fact here is that Etoile is many things (apps, frameworks,  
theme engine ...).  The devel variant just builds the whole package  
and enables debugging while the novariant builds a reduced set,  
targetting only the stable parts of the exact same source tree.  I  
won't argue about the consistency, but making two different ports  
means that they will overlap with one another and there is no  
mechanism in MP about this (except failing on activate).

What do you think ?

Right. Now it's been a while but I always used "system" for symlinks  
because I ran into troubles with the tcl "file link".  I don't  
remember exactly, but I think I got the build/destroot paths  
hardcoded in the symlinks.   And I also had problems with the newer  
tcl extensions (copy, move) which I don't use either.  I don't  
remember what happened exactly, but trying to use them was breaking  
my port, I don't think I filed a bug report on that, but I always use  
the tcl "file", except for symlinks of course.

Any similar experiences about this ?
