It seems to me that this could be fixed with a -I in things like
bsd.subdir.mak if DESTDIR is set (make would need to be modified
to honor the include path for for this to really work though, but
that wouldn't be too hard).  You could hack around this by doing
something like:
 make -r -I${DESTDIR}/usr/share/mk -f ${DESTDIR}/usr/share/mk/ <makefile>

Again, this could be fixed with a -M${DESTDIR}/usr/share/tmac in, no?

You'd still have to do a make install with DESTDIR for
the make includes and the tmac files, but then it would work.
