"--ignore-user-check" works fine for "/usr/pkg". But it e.g. doesn't
solve the problem that "/usr/pkgsrc" can reside on a Case-insensitive
volume e.g. because "pkgsrc/devel/CVS" and "pkgsrc/devel/cvs" conflict.
There are also package (e.g. "p5-perl-headers" or "bittorrent") which
don't work well on Case-insensitive filesystem.
