    i used to be able to have my pkgsrc on a remote NFS server (not
managed by me) and everything would work fine.    a while ago this 
got broken because "make install" started wanting to write to 
work/.PLIST as root:

===> Becoming to install xcolors-1.3.
su Password:
install -c   xcolors /usr/X11R6/bin/xcolors
install -c -m 0444 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Xcolors
install in . done in . done
cannot create /amd/test/root/usr/netbsd/current/pkgsrc/x11/xcolors/work/.PLIST: permission denied
*** Error code 2

is there any way to work around this?   it used to work fine.
