The PRE-INSTALL action in +INSTALL creates directories, which is strictly forbidden in SVR4 preinstall scripts.

Which +INSTALL script does that? PRE-INSTALL should normally only create
more meta-data files in pkgdb and maybe create users.

I'm looking at apache22, but the behaviour comes from the core of +INSTALL (mk/pkginstall/install). It optionally runs +DIRS a couple of times.
