Check what the configure script sets up and have the SUBST do the same
thing? That SUBST is just replicating what the package's own install
goo does because the pkgsrc logic bypasses that.

It is required in that without it, things don't work. I don't remember
the exact symptoms but if you have tin on NetBSD with

   PKG_OPTIONS.tin=-curses ncursesw -inet6

tin doesn't configure with ncurses and as a result does random tin
things that result in users getting annoyed.
