We're going around in circles here: Pkgsrc defaults to having $VARBASE on

If I have multiple bootstraps and different

share /var/db/*.

That's simply not true.  VARBASE will only default to /var if
PREFIX=/usr/pkg.  The bootstrap script logic is very clear.

I see what you mean.

I am sorry if I have added to some misunderstanding here, in which case I apologise, but I thought we were talking of default settings when I wrote "for all bootstraps". I am clearly showing evidence of poor language skills.
