mount --bind /usr/local/home bind worked like a charm, especially
after I noticed second IDE drive so I could preserve old and let
install do new.

 Thanks for the timely tip!

/dev/hdf1             /
/dev/hdf3             /var
/dev/hde3           /var/local
/home                /var/local/home   none   rw,bind
with two swaps  hdf2 and hde2
and my old /etc is available as /media/hde1/etc anytime I need it
without going to USB.
