bin-install with nothing very interesting on the cmd line, mk.conf, or
environment, but I am using a with the patch for pkg/30954.
It looks like the unpatched would not reveal this pkg_add
behavior (because the unpatched b.p.m still supplies the PKG_SUFX, but
omits the dewey wildcard).

Sorry to have made the distracting point about make; I should have
concentrated on the central issue of pkg_add and whether it successfully
handles a dewey wildcard and a suffix.  The C code in str.c and ftpio.c
appears intended to support that, but doesn't seem to work, and
that is repeatably testable using pkg_add alone.
