 While I agree that you're not responsible for documentation on the wiki, 
 is it reasonable that the default behavior of pbulk is to create an 
 unprivileged user, then try to compile with that user with the default 
 build location inside of the pkgsrc tree?
 Perhaps the build location's default in the context of pbulk should be 
 /usr/pbulk/tmp/. I think people should be able to chroot to a clean 
 location with a clean pkgsrc, then run:
 sh /usr/pkgsrc/mk/pbulk/
 without having to create an intermediate mk.conf or edit 
 /usr/pbulk/etc/mk.conf. Otherwise, what's the point of having a whole 
 build system with tools and configuration inside of /usr/pbulk?
 Back to this problem specifically, aside from adding WRKDIR to 
 /usr/pbulk/etc/mk.conf, what else nees to be changed to make this work out 
 of the box?
