That's upside down - if what I've experienced is not to be considered a
bug (namespace intrusion) then you need to protect pkgsrc builds _from_
base os make variables, i.e. put those into an .else clause in the above
I've done that in the meantime, and it fixes my problem.
Scanning doc/pkgsrc.mk, I see a platform-specific hint for OpenBSD,
but AFAIK the fact that pkgsrc ignores _NetBSD_ make variable namespace
has not been advertised, so far. This you could call a doc bug.
Do you feel like fixing the pkgsrc doc, or should I send-pr? ;)
