Look at, should give you a

Well, that is what the -1 does:) Then I looked into
yesterday and found it pretty confusing, but maybe I was just
tired... Looking again, it states

is definitely misleading in that case...

I have put up -3 files in the same directory, the only difference is
that the src-package doesn't have the usr/src/ prefix.
