Hm, sorry, s/rep/dir/.

This should demonstrate what I mean:

/tmp % mkdir tim                                                 nostromo 21:28
/tmp % cd tim                                                    nostromo 21:28
/tmp/tim % mkdir srcdir builddir                                 nostromo 21:28
/tmp/tim % echo srcdirdata>srcdir/data                           nostromo 21:28
