Thanks a lot for that pointer.  However …

‘make debug’ makes no mention of INSTALL_MAKE_ENV and sysutils/munin-server/Makefile has the only instance of that string in a pretty recent checkout of pkgsrc.  Is that a mistake that should be switched to INSTALL_MAKE_FLAGS?  Should INSTALL_MAKE_ENV be implemented somewhere?

In contrast, ‘make debug’ does mention INSTALL_MAKE_FLAGS and that is referenced numerous places.  However, INSTALL_MAKE_FLAGS is not documented in mk/install/; it seems that is should be.  As a side note, some of the package Makefiles use ‘=‘ rather than ‘+=‘; are these supposed to be ‘+=‘?

In any case, for now I have used 'INSTALL_MAKE_FLAGS+=destdir=${DESTDIR}’, which works perfectly.
