I don't think it is a good idea to replicate mk.conf functionality.

This is not the idea behind. I use mk.conf for my default things as pkgsrc developer. There I test with USE_DESTDIR, with and without MAKE_JOBS etc., but as a NetBSD user - when wanting my pkg tree updated, I'm not interested in breaking in the middle because of mk/ changes or packages without DESTDIR support. This is for the developer part - and I separate between them.

With this change, DESTDIR issues wont break simple usage of pkgsrc. I understand your arguments (and the intension behind joerg@'s changes), but I'm primary interested in keeping my system up and running. Since I'm off-site (and mostly without Internet access or at least very expensive) a lot of time and might refresh pkgsrc tree and distfiles at weekend and rebuilding during the week should break my system.
