some time ago I switched to using OWN_DIRS in mail/spamassassin to create
some directories under /usr/pkg/share/. But it seems I cannot I rely on
their existence because PKG_CONFIG=no turns off the creation of those
directories. As a consequence install targets in the package Makefile
as well as the PLIST are not correct.
Is this really the intended behaviour of PKG_CONFIG? If yes, then
OWN_DIRS is not really useful to me and I will have to create the
directories in the package Makefile again. In this case I wonder when
OWN_DIRS/MAKE_DIRS should be used at all.
Or did I misunderstand the purpose of OWN_DIRS completely?
