Subject: Setting PKGSRC_MESSAGE_RECIPIENTS by default

PKGSRC_MESSAGE_RECIPIENTS is great, but doesn't do much good when it's
not set.  It is quite easy to miss a MESSAGE, and most users probably
don't even _know_ about the variable.  Therefore, I propose that we mail
them to root by default.  If a machine doesn't have somebody reading
root's mail, well, shame on them.

Any objections?
