Well, I am not sure what "set" means. AFAIK if you have a line
"MANZ=" in /etc/mk.conf, its treated like set, namly set to "".
What confuses me a bit is that the automatic man page handling did
not cover this. If you set "MANZ=1" it should do the right thing
and compress the manpages and also set PLIST accordingly (works for me).
And if you don't set MANZ at all in /etc/mk.conf it should work too.

Well, this should work ok, we tryed our best not to set /usr/pkg
hardcoded anywhere. Did you see any problems with that?
