afterwards calls a recursive make similiar to the barrier stuff.

Patch for this approach is attached. Please test this.

Please see the following error log:

This is a virgin NetBSD-3.1 installation with a current pkgsrc checkout with your patch applied. I have:

    LOCALBASE=          /usr/pkg
    PKG_DBDIR=          ${LOCALBASE}/.pkgdb
    PKG_SYSCONFBASE=    /etc/pkg
    VARBASE=            /var/pkg
    WRKOBJDIR=          /tmp/pkgsrc

I did:

    # cd pkgsrc/archivers/mousetar
    # make install
