.It Pa usr.bin/
Not-so critical utilities for the system and users.
.It Pa usr.sbin/
Not-so critical utilities for the system and the superuser.
.It Pa common/
Sources shared between kernel and userland.
.Bl -tag -width "include/" -compact
.It Pa dist/
Utilities.
Every utility has its own subdirectory,
where its source and Makefile are located.
.It Pa include/
Include headers.
Every group of header files has its own
subdirectory, where it and its
Makefile are located.
.It Pa lib/
Libraries.
Every library has its own subdirectory,
where it and its Makefile are located.
.El
.It Pa compat/
A framework to (re)build the libraries
shipped with
.Nx
for different ABI than the default for
that platform.
.Bl -tag -width "compat/<arch1>/<arch2>/" -compact
.It Pa compat/<arch1>/<arch2>/
Every
.Pa compat/<arch1>/<arch2>/
directory contains a Makefile and a makefile
fragment for building an
.Pa <arch2>
compat libraries for
.Pa <arch1> .
E. g.,
.Pa compat/amd64/i386/
is where the 32-bit compat libraries for the
amd64 port are being built.
.It Pa compatsubdir.mk
The list of subdirectories (the libraries and
ld.elf_so) to build with this ABI.
.It Pa archdirs.mk
The list of subdirectories for each port.
.It Pa Makefile.compat
The basic framework to force the right paths for
library and ld.elf_so linkage.
.It Pa dirshack/Makefile
A hack to get objdirs created timely.
.El
.It Pa crypto/
Cryptographic source, which may have import or
export restrictions.
.Bl -tag -width "external/" -compact
.It Pa dist/
Original sources.
This is deprecated;
.Pa crypto/external/
should be used instead.
.It Pa external/
Original sources, grouped by license, and then
package per license.
.Pa crypto/external/<license>/<package>/dist/
contain original sources for given package;
other directories contain Makefiles and

should be used instead.
.It Pa distrib/

various types of floppies;
.Pa <arch>/ramdisk/
contains makefiles for making ramdisks etc.
.It Pa cdrom/
Was used to create bootable CD images.

.Bl -tag -width "usr.sbin/" -compact
.It Pa dist/
Unmodified third party source for a given package
.It Pa bin/
.It Pa usr.bin/
.It Pa usr.sbin/
.It etc.
Such subdirectories contain reachover Makefiles,
README's and various import helper scripts.
E. g.,
.Pa external/public-domain/
contains
sources licensed under Public Domain
license;
.Pa external/public-domain/sqlite/dist/
contains original sources;
.Pa external/public-domain/sqlite/bin/ ,
.Pa external/public-domain/sqlite/lib/
and
.Pa external/public-domain/sqlite/
itself contain reachover Makefiles.
.El
.It Pa extsrc/

should be used instead.
.Pa gnu/dists

were submitted to maintainers and that are not
yet published.
Other folders contain files that are never expected
to be submitted to the FSF (reachover Makefiles, etc.)

.It Pa libexec/
Source for utilities in
.Pa /usr/libexec .

into
.Pa tests/
once they are migrated to the
.Xr atf 7
test framework.
.It Pa rescue/
Makefiles for copying utilities to
.Pa /rescue .
.It Pa share/
Source for utilities/files in

.It Pa stand/
Source for several standalone programs that aren't used by
.Nx
currently.
.It Pa sys/
Header files that get installed into
.Pa /usr/include/sys .
.It Pa ufs/
UFS file system driver.
.It Pa uvm/
Virtual memory manager.
.El
.It Pa tests/
Source for test programs in
.Pa /usr/tests .
These tests use the
.Xr atf 7
test framework.
For library routines, including system calls, the
directory structure of the tests should follow the
directory structure of the real source tree.
For instance, interfaces available via the C
library should follow:
.Pa src/lib/libc/gen -> Pa src/tests/lib/libc/gen ,
.Pa src/lib/libc/sys -> Pa src/tests/lib/libc/sys ,
etc.
Equivalently, all tests for userland utilities
should try to follow their location in the source tree.
If this can not be satisfied, the tests for
a utility should be located under the directory to which
the utility is installed.
Thus, a test for
.Xr env 1
should go to
.Pa src/tests/usr.bin/env .
Likewise, a test for
.Xr tcpdump 8
should be in
.Pa src/tests/usr.sbin/tcpdump ,
even though the source code for the program is located under
.Pa src/external .
.It Pa tools/
Reachover build structure for the host build tools.
Every utility has its own directory, where its Makefile
is located.
.It Pa x11/
Reachover build structure for X11R7; the source is in
.Pa X11SRCDIR .
The directory structure copies the system\'s;
every directory contains a Makefile.
