Lately, the machinery seems not to be reading the "/etc/pkg_install.conf"

$ strings /usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_add | grep pkg_install.conf

strings: '/usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_add': No such file


  $ strings $(which pkg_add) | grep pkg_install.conf

But it's not pkg_add that's having a problem.  It's the build-machinery
failing to pick up the "ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES=foo-license" statements
from it, which used to work just fine.  In the current state, it refuses
to (re-)build my preferred packages, or selects a non-preferred variant
because the additional licenses are not present in the variable.

(I should note that this has so far only been observed on NetBSD-6.99.17
for amd64.  When my other systems (netbsd-6 on i386, amd64, and sparc;
soon-to-be 6.99.18 on macppc) get around to the problem packages, I'll
be able to see if this is widespread.)
