No, this is about the *current* pkg_install. I simply can't do things
like the USE_DESTDIR support correctly without either having to fully
separate the pkg_create calling part in the package source framework and
cluttering it with mtree creation etc or copying the whole package for
the non-DESTDIR case. Neither is really attractive for me.

Note that this will replace the pax dependency for pkg_install, which is
IMO a big plus for pkgsrc on all platforms but NetBSD. I'm not entirely
sure whether I can make it install in-place already, but I am
investigating this.
