Re: pkg/55952: Problems with /usr/pkg hardcoding in pkgsrc

./bootstrap --abi 64 --full --make-jobs 8 --prefer-pkgsrc --prefix /usr/local

I think the problem here is that "--prefer-pkgsrc" is not a valid
argument by itself, it should be "--prefer-pkgsrc yes" or similar.

The getopt parsing is a little fragile and is simply shifting over
your "--prefix" argument, and then ignoring an unknown "/usr/local"
argument, thus you're getting the default, and no helpful warning.

We should definitely make it more robust.

That's what it was? Damn. Well, yes, it should be more robust.

Thank you,
John Klos
