 That doesn't make sense... hmm.
 It looks like the real problem is that the makefile inside checkperms
 ignores /etc/mk.conf. This in turn seems to be because the MAKECONF it
 gets passed is /dev/null because PKGMAKECONF is empty, even though
 MAKECONF in pkgsrc points to /etc/mk.conf and those settings are seen
 there. I'm not sure if this is expected/appropriate behavior or not.
 Maybe the proper solution is to add
        MANINSTALL=${MANINSTALL:Umaninstall catinstall}
