I wonder if we should remove the BUILD_ROOT variable, and replace it with
PKGSRCDIR everywhere?

Doing a quick grep over pkgsrc/*/*/Makefile* shows this should work
(except for math/p5-Math-Pari, which thinks it can reach the pkgsrc dir
with BUILD_ROOT, which does NOT work if one has WRKOBJDIR set - which I

Does anyone remember what that variable was intended for? :)
