Log Message:
Create a new knob: PKG_SYSCONFVAR

PKG_SYSCONFVAR is the special suffix used to distinguish any overriding
	values for a particular package (see next item).  It defaults to
	${PKGNAME}, but for a collection of related packages that should
	all have the same PKG_SYSCONFDIR value, it can be set in each of
	the package Makefiles to a common value.

	for packages with the same value for PKG_SYSCONFVAR.

Package maintainers may want to set PKG_SYSCONFVAR to a common value for
related packages, e.g. all of the amanda packages set PKG_SYSCONFVAR=amanda
so that the PKG_SYSCONFDIR for all of them may be tweaked by just setting
PKG_SYSCONFDIR.amanda in /etc/mk.conf.
