I think this change was a good idea in general. I understand your
concern that some user configurations will break. Since this is
pkgsrc-current, we should feel free to make invasive changes as long
as we're sure to usefully document in the quarterly branch how users
should deal with it. Here's a stab at reporting which settings people
should examine and probably fix:

$ MKFILES=/etc/mk.conf; printenv | cut -f 1 -d = | while read envvar;
do grep -w -- "${envvar}" ${MKFILES}; done
