Meh.  It looks like I shouldn't be doing NetBSD stuff late at night...
 The thing is I got some private comments saying "yay!" since the
email, so I cleaned this up a little bit today and submitted it.

I'm open to adjusting the implementation.  Why do you think it's bad
and how'd you do it?  I guess some homogenization between all the
tools would be good, given that all of them should have the exact same
behavior for locating the pkgdb -- which affects the the -K flag,
PKG_DBDIR environment variable, the PKG_DBDIR configuration variable
and the default value (in that order).  But, for starters, I tried to
disrupt the current code as less as possible given that there is no
easy way to test it.
