	If pkgsrc were modified to have:
		name			default
		PREFIX			/usr/pkg
		VAR_PREFIX		/var
	this would appear to solve the problems for from-source builders.
	They tweak the defines appropriately and then every package
	installs in the way they prefer.

	This involves some significant work in pkgsrc, which I'm not
	volunteering for, since I'm happy with the status quo. However
	if it fits the needs of those who need change, maybe they could
	look into it (or a variation thereof :)
