No, unless you install it in /usr/X11R7 or

  |   $ XAPPLRESDIR=/usr/pkg/lib/X11/app-defaults xfig

or make some connection between the directories (like the union mount
use) it doesn't matter which "other" directory it is in.

Not certain about the complaint window, but it certainly was never
useful (usable) without the resources file being moved.

  | It appears the PLIST history is missing.  The current revision is 1.12,
  | but there are no entries prior to that shown in the cvs-web interface.

That appears to be something related to the web interface, what I see
using cvs directly (on a copy of anoncvs in this case so it should be
seeing the exact same data as the web interface sees) is:

	cvs diff -r1.11 -r1.12 PLIST | grep app-

so you're right, that was the version where it changed.   The cvs log
output isn't helpful though, all that contains is the CHANGES files from
xfig upstream, together with the note that it was an upgrade.  The
associated Makefile log entry is the same.

I don't see anything in the (pkgsrc) Makefile changes for that
version which would have made a difference, certainly there was
	CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --with-appdefaultdir= ...
in the previous version that was accidentally deleted (there are
many other changes however).

I think I'll point wiz@ (who did that last upgrade) at your patch
from the later message, and perhaps it will get added.   Or you could
turn that into a PR.
