Re: pkg/36662: pkgtools/pkg_install's audit_packages appears to be platform-specific

Additionally, I have a peculiar problem with pkg_install *only*

When I go to "bmake" any target (other than clean) for it, I get:

netbsd@octane ~/pkgtools/pkg_install # bmake patch
=> Required installed package digest>=20010302: digest-20070703 found

ERROR:     stale work directory for ../../pkgtools/digest?
*** Error code 1

bmake: stopped in /usr/bsd/src/pkgtools/pkg_install

/usr/bsd/var/db/pkg is the correct directory, there is no stale work
directory for digest, and (as the first line shows) the digest package
is clearly installed.

As I said, this affects no other package...

(It looks as if the shell is trying to interpret the PKG_DBDIR
variable as a command - but the strange thing is that after a
seemingly variable number of attempts, with or without cleans and with
different targets, it will eventually work.)

Still two outstanding issues:

* <err.h> is still being unconditionally included.  This is wrong.  It
should be replaced with a conditional include from nbcompat/, as with
sha2.h a few lines below.

* There's something screwey in nbcompat/err.h, which breaks IRIX'
cdefs.h - and cdefs.h must be included in order to get the __P macro.
So <sys/cdefs.h> must be included *before* <nbcompat/err.h>
