 It appears that this is caused simply by the makefile's `do-install'
 target, which omits any reference to DESTDIR:
        ${INSTALL_SCRIPT} ${FILESDIR}/ ${PREFIX}/sbin/pkg_comp
        ${INSTALL_MAN} ${FILESDIR}/pkg_comp.8 
 should be
        ${INSTALL_MAN} ${FILESDIR}/pkg_comp.8 
 A cursory grep[1] suggests that many other packages in the `pkgtools'
 directory exhibit the same problem: pkg_notify autoswc binpatch
 bootstrap-extras cdpack dfdisk lintpkgsrc pkg_alternatives pkg_chk
 pkg_filecheck pkg_select pkgclean pkgdep pkgdepgraph pkgfind pkgse
 port2pkg rc.subr revbump rpm2pkg url2pkg.  There are many, many more
 in the rest of pkgsrc.  Scanning the `pkg'-category problem reports, I
 guess these are being reported incrementally.
 [1] find pkgtools -name Makefile | xargs grep 'INSTALL.*PREFIX' \
       | grep -v DESTDIR
