No, it isn't. Usually, pkgsrc is installed into /usr/pkg or $HOME/pkg.
Neither of those directories is covered by the FHS.
Since all PLIST entries are installed relative to this prefix, the "bin"
directory tends to be /usr/pkg/bin. For pkgsrc, there is no need to
distinguish between bin and usr/bin, since all pkgsrc packages are
considered to be "userland" programs.
