Hello, Jonathan!

Thank you for those docs!

It would be great if the "/data" prefix was not hard-coded.  Ideally,
it would be easy to configure, but if that's too much of a pain, then
if it could at least be hard-coded to something like "/var/pkgbuild" or
whatever, that would be much better.  In my organization, "/data" is
already being used, and "data" has a specific meaning that has nothing
to do with pkgsrc.

It would also be great if pkgbuild supported builds on NetBSD!
