In other words, I'm fine with running bootstrap as root but I'd like
to keep the pkgsrc directory with my own user's permission.
Use bootstrap with a prefix specified.
./bootstrap --prefix /home/foo
If I'm reading the question correctly, and you really want to install in
/usr, you could probably premake the directories:
mkdir /usr/pkg /usr/pkgsrc
chown yourlogin /usr/pkg /usr/pkgsrc
./bootstrap --unprivileged ...
