On 02-Jul-98 Perry E. Metzger spoke unto us all:
#  The package pretty much insists on hard coding the architecture into
#  the build directory, which makes the PLIST non-MI. I tried several
#  trivial ways to fix this, and it turns out that the package knows way
#  too much way too deeply about the name of said directory -- it is
#  hardcoded into a couple of things.

I don't really understand what you are asking here.. but I'll take a stab at
it.  On my glunix pkg, it does a very annoying thing and names the binaries
(and slews of directories and the like) xxxx-i386-NetBSD.  (or alpha, or
whatever) so you end up with platform dependent install targets, and it screws
up the plist, blah blah blah..

I fixed it by having "make" call make install inside the work tree, it installs
into a subdir of the work tree, and then the make install target of the pkg
makefile does a *real* install, and moves all the files, and renames them and
all that fun stuff.
