 This is a clean system, but I'll run it again. It's an El Capitan system 
 (original Mac Pro). Because of SIP, /usr/pkg cannot be used, of course.
 rm -Rf pkgsrc ; tar xzf pkgsrc.tar.gz       (from 22-Jan-2021)
 cd pkgsrc/bootstrap
 ./bootstrap --abi 64 --full --make-jobs 8 --prefer-pkgsrc --prefix /usr/local
 I see things like this:
 ===> Bootstrapping mk-files
 ===> running: (cd /Users/john/pkgsrc/pkgtools/bootstrap-mk-files/files && 
 env CP=/bin/cp  OPSYS=Darwin 
 MK_DST=/Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/share/mk ROOT_GROUP=wheel 
 ROOT_USER=root SED=/usr/bin/sed SYSCONFDIR=/usr/pkg/etc /bin/sh 
 where SYSCONFDIR should be derived from prefix, and like this:
 ===> Building libnbcompat
 ===> running: /bin/sh /Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bin/install-sh -d 
 -o root -g wheel /Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/libnbcompat
 ===> running: (cd /Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/libnbcompat; /bin/sh 
 ./configure  -C --prefix=/usr/pkg --infodir=/usr/pkg/info 
 --mandir=/usr/pkg/man --sysconfdir=/usr/pkg/etc --enable-bsd-getopt 
 --enable-db && /Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bin/bmake  -j8)
 where prefix should be derived from prefix!
 Also, we have:
 --- automatic.o ---
 cc -isystem /usr/include -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DDEF_LOG_DIR=\"/usr/pkg/pkgdb\" 
 -I/Users/john/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/libarchive/libarchive -I. -I. 
 -DSYSCONFDIR=\"/usr/pkg/etc\" -DPREFIX=\"\" -DBOOTSTRAP -g -O2 -c 
 While I think (thought) that pkgdbdir should follow prefix, I didn't 
 check, and I see it isn't. That should be fixed. If pkgdbdir is meant to 
 exist outside of prefix, then that's when it should need to be set. 
 But it still fails with --pkgdbdir /usr/local/pkgdb.
 Then I realized that the tools that are failing are everything built based 
 on --prefer-pkgsrc.
 ./bootstrap --abi 64 --full --make-jobs 8 --prefix /usr/local
 This works fine, and nothing mentions /usr/pkg.
