All this is described in the documenattion and know this very well.
I see you really think I'm idiot.
Ok, especially for *genius* NetBSD developer I repeat once again (last one!).
1) *installation* is a phase of the pkgsrc build
* Full DESTDIR support can run the complete build, installation and
packaging as normal user.
Root privileges are only needed to add packages.
This pacragraph needs to be improved
...or USE_DESTDIR=full to get the full support with fallback to basic
It's now clear what does 'fallback to basic support' mean.
4) PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT is not described in pkgsrc.txt at all.
5) make help topic=destdir
# This is not supported for actual installation yet, due to
# short comings of pkg_create. [FIXME]
# * "destdir" means that some of the installed files need special
# ownership or permissions. The installation is done by the
# privileged user.
