Danomi, All,

On 2017-01-04 22:55 -0500, Danomi Manchego spake thusly:
> It is possible to have a custom skeleton without a /usr/{lib,bin,sbin},

> get created when packages install there, but at skeleton installation time,
> the following command fails if /usr does not yet exist:

> So, in the spirit of ensuring that directories exist before installing there,

NAK. Our stance is that, when using a custom skeleton, the user is
responsible for providing a correct skeleton. For example, we check
for the merged-usr consistency on lines 36-57, so this means that bin
sbin and lib should already exist.

So, instead of crating those directories, we should check they do exist.

Just for your information, I've been working on a series that reworks
our handling of skeletons:
    https://git.buildroot.org/~ymorin/git/buildroot/log/?h=yem/systemd-skeleton
and the pending rewrite to accomodate for requested changes:
    https://git.buildroot.org/~ymorin/git/buildroot/log/?h=yem/systemd-skeleton-2

In this series (which was basically approved on the principles), the
custom skeleton is now checking that those dirs exists:
    https://git.buildroot.org/~ymorin/git/buildroot/tree/package/skeleton-custom/skeleton-custom.mk?h=yem/systemd-skeleton&id=5a9b164a32e888b713d9aad911313c27fbb5052f
