 	When pkgsrc needs to create a homedir for a pkgsrc user in which
 	to store data (eg: pgsql, and a teamspeak-server package I'm
 	planning on committing after the freeze), some packages
 	default the homedir to ${PREFIX}/${USER}. I'd like to suggest they
 	instead uses ${VARBASE}/${USER}, or possibly a (someone _please_
 	give a better name that doesn't involve DIY) ${HOMEBASE}/${USER}.

 	What do people think?
