Okay, I just encountered a situation that would make me concede that
having to specify the PKG_DBDIR in both places would be better. I think
this would only happen on NetBSD. If the pkg_install pkg from pkgsrc is
installed, say as a by product of installing pkgin, then because how
$PATH is defined, where /usr/sbin is in front of /usr/pkg/sbin, then the
user shell will use /usr/sbin/pkg_*, while the build machinery will use
$LOCALBASE/sbin/pkg_*, where $LOCALBASE is /usr/pkg. The
$LOCALBASE/sbin/pkg_* uses the /usr/pkg/etc/pkg_install.conf. So now we
have /etc/pkg_install.conf and /usr/pkg/etc/pkg_install.conf and it
becomes confusing quickly. Oh, boy... I give up.
Anyway, I guess you can close this one. Well, it's been an informative
experience exploring pkgsrc/mk. I apologize for the noise.
