after installing binutils- many packages don't install anymore. 
The reason is:

 > /usr/bin/install -c -o roland -g users -m 555 .libs/libz.lai 
 > /usr/bin/install -c -o roland -g users -m 555 .libs/libz.a 
 > ranlib /home/roland/pkg/lib/libz.a
 > ranlib: unable to copy file '/home/roland/pkg/lib/libz.a' reason: 
Permission denied

So I wrote a sandwich wrapper script that does a "chmod u+w" before and 
a chmod "u-w" after, and now they built. Can we integrate this behaviour 
into pkgsrc, maybe as another buildlink3 wrapper script?
