I see an interesting failure when attempting to package 
shells/standalone-tcsh during a sandboxed bulk build of pkgsrc-2006Q3 on 

=> Automatic manual page handling
=> Generating post-install file lists
=> Running POST-INSTALL script actions
Adding standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1 shells to /etc/shells:


=> Registering installation for standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1
=> Checking for missing run-time search paths in standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1
=> Checking for work-directory references in standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1
=> Checking file-check results for standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1

/etc/mk.conf has (among others)

WRKOBJDIR?=/var/tmp/pkgsrc   # build here instead of in pkgsrc

-- shouldn't the file-check exclude the WRKOBJDIR tree?
