        While building a package from the source, a binary package is
        created in /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/.
        That one is installed when calling "make install".
        But if the package working directory is removed - e.g. in order
        to save space after build, the prepared package is not deleted too.
        If a reinstallation is required - e.g. after the package has been
        removed with pkg_delete - "make install" will not detect the already
        present binary package and start building everything again.

        Install a package, look into /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/.
        Try "make clean" - prepared package still present.
        use pkg_delete to remove the package
        Try "make install" again - everything will be rebuild, even
        if the prepared binary package is still there.
        Either delete the "useless" binary package during "make clean" too
        or add support to detect a present binary package during next
        "make install".
        remark: when just runnimng "make" the binary packages should be rebuild,
                only "make install" should reuse it.
