While grepping a bunch of pkgsrc Makefiles for references to SUBST one
sees lines like the following:

unison/Makefile:SUBST_CLASSES=          x11
unison/Makefile:SUBST_STAGE.x11=        post-patch
unison/Makefile:SUBST_FILES.x11=        Makefile.OCaml
unison/Makefile:SUBST_SED.x11=          -e "s|/usr/X11R6|${X11BASE}|g"
unison/Makefile:SUBST_MESSAGE.x11=      "Fixing X11 paths."

Those variables aren't documented in pkgsrc.txt, though.
