This is true for overwrite installations, but not with pkgviews. Even though
the pkg-config package has a lib/pkgconfig directory and this directory may
be present in the standard view, the directory does not exist under the
PREFIX qt3-libs gets installed to (/usr/pkg/packages/qt3-libs-<version>/).
Therefore, it needs to be created using e.g. PKG_INSTALLATION_DIRS or
INSTALL_*_DIR, I chose the latter because of the similar line above.

I don't know if pkgviews is still supposed to be supported since I read
that it was about to be replaced, but since I don't know yet what will
replace pkgviews I am still using it.
