errors verifying PLIST during make.
pkgsrc looks for files in work/.destdir/usr/pkg/.... the upstream Makefile places these files in work/.destdir/usr/X11R7/...

The source appears to be where setting cursordir or --with-cursordir=\$$datadir/icons

cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/cursor-themes
make install
after the install fails ...
cd /var/work/x11R7/xcursor-themes
cd work/.destdir/usr
mv X11 pkg

make install

a better solution suggests a set or override of the value of datadir
somewhere (this is set to /usr/X11R7)
maybe /usr/pkg can be passed from mk to automake, autoconf or configure

Enhancement: it would have been easier to identify the fix if pkgsrc had reported the problem more clearly.
after checking PLIST that .destdir has expected files;
 check if .destdir has extra files... and then
WARNING: package has files to install outside of /usr/pkg/
