First -- why did pkg_admin find the copy in /etc, when 'make' did not?

make calls pkg_admin from pkgsrc if pkg_install is installed.

Second -- this distinction looks troublesome down the road. Normally,
I don't install pkg_install from pkgsrc; presumably, that means that
the copy in /etc would be checked.  But sometimes, pkgsrc itself is
updated enough that 'make' fails until I update my package tools -- at which point everything is going to look for a different copy. Or am I
missing something?

...which is something I can't resolve. You can always make
/usr/pkg/etc/pkg_install.conf a symlink to /etc/pkg_install.conf :)

Yup, that was how I tested it...

I suspect that the proper answer is to always check /usr/pkg/etc/ pkg_install.conf, even if using the base system's pkg tools.
