I've run that configuration for ~ten years, without any fallout.

may I ask you to look at the above patch before venting, and tell me where,
in your view, it goes wrong?

Arguably, <> has no business configuring install target related
variables (here: INSTPRIV) when you (or pkgsrc) set NEED_OWN_INSTALL_TARGET
in order to signal you'll take care of installation yourself.

Fixing that is not a hack.
