It builds libarchive first and runs the pkg_install configure second. It
is using a local static version to be standalone. Same would be the case
for bzip2 and zlib.

Primay development platform of libarchive is FreeBSD -- and I guess they
fixed this a while ago. I'll take the patch upstream.

Well, yes, no surprise. You can't use USE_DESTDIR=full for updating the
version that has the (new) -u/-g options. You can use USE_DESTDIR=yes
for that though.
