I wonder why can't you mount /usr/local via nullfs, just like you do with

have 60 copies of these libraries etc.?
I have not drawn the line where to split ezjails world randomly. There are
parts of the FreeBSD operating system that are static and sharable. You
can get a raw impression about what those parts are in the Filesystem
Hierarchy Standard . Historically there have always been reasons to
allow certain subsystems to be shared and similar reasons to not expect
them to be writable.
ezjail aims to keep to these standards. /usr/local is per definition a
local and unsharable part of the world. While there is nothing that
stops you from sharing /usr/local between jails, the ez way would rather
go for something like /opt. I already thought about that, but currently I
am working on restore.
