In fact I'm not sure that it's an issue for BSD.  VPATH won't be needed for
the unix makefile, and the only time it would apply would be if there were a
BSD specific directory added (unlikely).

I guess the issue is how many platforms will have their own directories and
how many will need the VPATH functionality.
