Au contraire, the setting here was not wrong - it has been like
that for over two years, and no-one complained about it until you
modified the setting, without prior consultation, two months ago.
The setting was the same as was set in the old
mk.conf.example file, and is the correct one.

If you use a different setting in your environment, you are perfectly
free to set it in your own /etc/mk.conf.

I fail to see how any su(1) invocation could be platform-dependent,
since the pkgsrc implementation was developed on Solaris.

I shall revert the change you made to - if you disagree with
this, please start discussion on tech-pkg about it.
