Re: installation fails when using SU_CMD=su -...

I just noticed there is something wrong with SU_CMD: I cannot build
games/netmaj with "SU_CMD=sudo su - root -c" because the environment
variable OPSYS (among others, like HOST_OSTYPE, LOWER_OPSYS,
LOWER_OS_VERSION) is not known.
Now that I searched for it, it looks like doc/pkgsrc.txt has recommended
"su root..." instead of "su - root..." since revision 1.1 from 2004.

Is my memory wrong when I think that "su - root..." has been supported
in the past?

A comment in says:

# XXX: Shouldn't the $${PATH} be ${PATH} here? This may be related to
# PR 34470.
_ROOT_CMD=      cd ${.CURDIR} && \
                ${SETENV} ${PKGSRC_MAKE_ENV} \
                        PATH="$${PATH}:"${SU_CMD_PATH_APPEND:Q} \
                ${MAKE} ${MAKEFLAGS} \
                        PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL=${PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL:Q} \
                        su-${.TARGET} ${${.TARGET}}

That may be the problem. I couldn't find any documentation for the reason that $${PATH} is used in this place, so I didn't dare to change it.
