I believe I brought it up months before it even was even changed because
I had already been doing that.

I wanted pkg_install to be packaged. I used the pkgsrc packages on
machines without any pkgsrc building.

I have been using pkg_install-testing from pkgsrc-wip. (It needs to be
updated.) My workaround in the Makefile itself is:
FORCE_PKG_REGISTER=     # defined
(which means now I have multiple packages installed).
