+Enable use of installed packages directly as binary packages. This is
+similar to using binary packages produced by \fBquickpkg\fR(1), but
+installed packages are used directly as though they are binary packages.
+This option only works in combination with the \fB\-\-root=DIR\fR option,
+and it comes with the caveat that packages are only allowed to be
+installed into the root that is specified by the \fB\-\-root=DIR\fR
+option (the other root which serves as a source of packages is
+assumed to be immutable during the entire operation).
+Default behavior for handling of protected configuration files is
+controlled by the \fBQUICKPKG_DEFAULT_OPTS\fR variable. The relevant
+quickpkg options are \fI\-\-include\-config\fR and
+\fI\-\-include\-unmodified\-config\fR (refer to the \fBquickpkg\fR(1)
+man page). When a configuration file is not included because it is
+protected, an ewarn message is logged.
