My comments from above mail:
Maybe we should have a new variable called PKG_NO_MTREE. If it is defined
then NO_MTREE will also be defined.
And if it is defined when building pkg_install then the MTREE_FNAME will
not be included in the ALL_FNAMES definition.
Or alternatively get rid of this mtree support.
