 'make show-var' is not supposed to show anything.  What you probably want i=
 'make show-var VARNAME=3DPKG_SYSCONFDIR' within any package.
 I just tried to changed the PKG_SYSCONFBASE variable in the predefined
 template to something non-standard (e.g. /etc/pkg), created a new sandox wi=
 that modified config and ran the above command in print/cups.  It works fin=
 pkg_comp:default.conf# make show-var VARNAME=3DPKG_SYSCONFDIR
