>Description:'s fake-target strips leading ${PKGSRCDIR} from the pathnames included
in grep's output in BUILD_VERSION_FILE. But the prefix of these pathnames can
be different from PKGSRCDIR. If one set PKGSRCDIR in /etc/mk.conf - you should
do this if pkgsrc pathname is non-standard and you want to use pkg_chk - and
the value is a symlink or an automounter is involved in the path then
make's .CURDIR prefix can be different - in fact most of the time it is - of
PKGSRCDIR while running in a pkg directory. Unfortunately .CURDIR is what
gets "used" while generating the file list to grep ($files) in order to
generate the BUILD_VERSION_FILE. Hence The +BUILD_VERSION file ends up 
with full pathnames which is not desirable IMHO.
Make a symlink to your pkgsrc, sets PKGSRCDIR in /etc/mk.conf to the pathname
of the symlink, build and install a package "from the symlink path": the 
generated/installed $PKG_DBDIR/$PKGNAME/+BUILD_VERSION file contains 
full pathnames.
The following patch try to address this issue: sed "search" for
PKGPATH in the pathnames thrown in BUILD_VERSION_FILE to strip what is before
