System: irrelevant

	This URL:

	has example setting for /etc/mk.conf that doesn't work since PKGSRCDIR (iirc) has been renamed:

	When binary packages are made, save them in an OS_VERSION and MACHINE_ARCH specific subdirectory. 

	Right now this ends up with PACKAGES being set to /packages/${OS_VERSION}/${MACHINE_ARCH},
	which is not desired behaviour.

	Not sure, but maybe just use ${_PKGSRCDIR} instead ${PKGSRCDIR}?
