grep -r /tmp/pkgsrc $PREFIX

I suspect there's some package that still contains a reference to the
symlink.  Candidates are libtool-base or any other compiler wrapper.

If there is no reference to /tmp/pkgsrc anywhere, I'm out of guesses.
In that case, you probably need to track the problem down using the
macOS equivalent of ktrace, strace, truss.
