+ PKG_ADD=      ${WRKSRC}/add/pkg_add
+ PKG_ADMIN=    ${WRKSRC}/admin/pkg_admin
+ PKG_CREATE=   ${WRKSRC}/create/pkg_create

This is a BAD idea and I guess this wasn't discussed before.
Now there is NO way to specify an different location of these files.
And why is /usr/sbin/pkg_* not needed?
Could you please stop right here to play with pkg_install?

There is no need to do changes which aren't discussed before.


P.S. I would have avoid to send it here, but thats seems the only way to
get a discussion of it.
