OK, now (with your last DESTDIR fix as well) it all seems to be working fine
for me, automatically (without needing to explicitly reference checkperms
in pkg_comp's config file - which is as it should be).

It didn't work for me using a binary package I built last Friday, but does
now - both when compiling from source, and then from a clean sandbox
using a binary package.   The latter suggests that the binary package now
is different than it was before (I have no idea how, I did not keep the
old one - it looked OK from a quick glance, it contained bin/checkperms,
but that wasn't being installed in the sandbox, even though the pkg db
thought it had been).   That suggests to me that perhaps a revbump should
have accompanied the most recent update.
