I was a lot confused that my settings in ${MAKECONF} were not read by 
Makefiles inside packages. I found the cause to be the PKGMAKECONF 
variable in /

Is this variable really necessary? My ${MAKECONF} looks like this:

   .ifdef BSD_PKG_MK       # begin pkgsrc settings 

   <pkgsrc settings>

   <other settings>

So the pkgsrc settings would not be applied to other projects.

I don't see any reasons to keep the PKGMAKECONF variable. Please tell me 
if there are any.
