Is there a system variable with pkgsrc that specifies where log file  
should be created?
Can we assume that ${VARBASE}/log does exist and is a suitable place  
to store logs?
The same question holds for PID files and ${VARBASE}/run.

Is it possible to pass such values using the pkgsrc options framework  
giving someone installing pkgsrc the opportunity to specify different  
values than the defaults?
