Hi Martin, in this environment, you probably set WRKOBJDIR to something
under /var/tmp or leave it in tree.

What I'm currently testing in
>> -ALL_ENV+=              HOME=${FAKEHOMEDIR}
will simply keep things there as well.

What has not been dealt with [yet] is if it is eventually appropriate to
push that elsewhere... for example something like user or pkg defined PKGTMPDIR.
In which case, TMPDIR could be something like TMPDIR=${PKGTMPDIR:U${FAKEHOMEDIR}}

Myself I keep WRKOBJDIR in '/tmp/pkgsrc' and have only come across so far an issue when building clang as the build directory pushes over 24G!  Naturally using /var/tmp/pkgsrc
easily gets over this, but that means /var/tmp must also be able to handle the size.

I'm in absolutely no hurry to rush the patch, which will certainly need more experience "in the field".
