That's one way to do it. ;-)

Inspection of the package Makefile's (in net/samba) suggests:

  # make show-var VARNAME=SAMBA_PRIVATE
  # make show-var VARNAME=SAMBA_LOCKDIR
  # make show-var VARNAME=SAMBA_LOGDIR
  # make show-var VARNAME=SAMBA_ETCDIR

Note that those aren't the defaults; I have PKG_SYSCONFBASE=/etc in
my "/etc/mk.conf". The defaults for the first and last item would be
under ${PREFIX}/etc.

The scheme is now to put all such things in PKG_SYSCONFBASE and
VARDIR, both configurable.
