Not quite. For twins baldwin and bridgeport (only), /usr/local is 
mounted from pogo. Any user on the twins, including root, can read 
/usr/local, but not write to it. So, when making keys on the twins, use 
/etc for the keys directory. The /etc directory is local to all machines 
and /usr/local is local to all machines except the twins.
