        @if [ -f ${PKGFILE} ] ; then                                    \
                ${PKG_ADD} ${PKGFILE} ;                                 \
        else                                                            \
                ${MAKE} ${MAKEFLAGS} package &&                         \

Um... what else do you want? If a binary pkg is there, it's installed with
pkg_add. If not, the pkg is built, installed, and pkg'd up for later us. 

(I know that we could try a lot harder here, poking various values into
PKG_PATH and things, but, well, I never got around to. :)
