	If I have OBJMACHINE="" in the environment and no /etc/mk.conf,
	then "make" builds a "work.ARCH" directory but "make install"
	fails because it can't change to a "work" directory to do
	the install.

	rbtx4927 49> make install
	rbtx4927 50> make install
	===> Installing for osname-1.1
	===> Becoming root@rbtx4927 to install osname-1.1.
	/usr/bin/su cd: can't cd to /NetBSD/pkgsrc/sysutils/osname/work/osname-1.1
	*** Error code 2
	rbtx4927 51> ls
	CVS/       DESCR      Makefile   PLIST      distinfo   work.mipseb/

	make sure no OBJMACHINE is in /etc/mk.conf, put OBJMACHINE=""
	in your environment, and "make ; make install" in a package
	directory (it doesn't seem to matter which one).

	None given.
