NO_WRKDIR_SYMLINK (the older name) was added in 2005 before I was even a
developer and changed a bit later to CREATE_WRKDIR_SYMLINK based on your
suggestion. So don't blame me for not adding text to the pkgsrc guide.

The behavior of the symlink as stated in the mail to tech-pkg directly
violates your own reasoning in the original commits: WRKOBJDIR is not
making the pkgsrc tree read-only. This has created confusing over the
year I was participating in pkgsrc (I don't even bother to look for
older examples) and the older behavior can be restored by setting the
variable explicitly.
