Just run chown -R.  Other than building pkgsrc, nothing in the system
actually cares who owns /usr/pkgsrc or even if it exists.  You can also
put it other places.

git needs to be able to write.   You could put your keypair (can be the
same) in /root/.ssh/, but it's far simpler and safer to just chown
