It may be useful to have a few more variables for chmod permissions,
for example:

I wasn't sure what to name them, so I suggest some generics like:

MODE0500?=	0700

The reason: I am doing pkgsrc without any superuser privileges. And some
pkgsrc builds (like samba) will change permissions and then later the
non-root user can't place new files or remove files without manually
making them writable again.
