Apoligies, I also had append_only. The slackware installer keeps track of
instlled packages by writing the package name to /var/adm/packages and
filling it with the location of files. I was wanting to only have it unset
append_only when the installer was run, and unset append_only and
no_delete_or_rename when the uninstaller was run.
