	The  pkg_chk requires absolute path for the -C option. This is
	because the extract_variables does a cd to the
	$PKGSRCDIR/pkgtools/pkg_chk and after that relative path
	of the pkgchk.conf stored in the opt_C does not work



	cd /usr/pkgsrc; pkg_chk -a -C pkgchk.conf

	and you notice that it does not install anything, nor does it
	print out error messages, it simply exits with error value 1
	without doing anything.


	Either check if the path given to opt_C is relative and
	convert it to absolute while parsing the option list, or
	change all cases where pkg_chk uses cd to change to another
	directory so they will change back to old directory after
	doing their work.
