Why is PKGLOCALDIR defined as "lib" in, but left as
"share" on every other platform?

It breaks lots of PLISTS, for example - gtexinfo:

installing as /home/jonp/pkg/share/locale/cs/LC_MESSAGES/
pkg_create: can't stat `/home/jonp/pkg/lib/locale/cs/LC_MESSAGES/'

If there is no technical reason, and is merely a merge botch, can it be
put back to share please?  If there is, then I guess gtexinfo and others
will need to be moved to dynamic PLIST.
