After going through my previous attempts, I rewrote the bsdtar section
with a pax -wr in the do-install section.

       cd ${WRKSRC}/obj/dist/cliqz && \
               ${PAX} -wr * ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX}/lib/cliqz && \
               ${CHOWN} -R ${ROOT_USER}:${ROOT_GROUP} ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX}/lib/*

It no longer does an uncompress process on the archive, but copies the
files from the build's obj directory output to the respective binary
location for pkgsrc.

rillig@, let me know if pax -wr is fine to use, since it has been used
in many packages to copy build's obj directory output to the
respective binary location for pkgsrc.

The changes have been pushed to pkgsrc-wip.I believe I have addressed
and fixed all the issues that were mentioned in the original post and
fixed them. Also found and fixed some minor bugs in the meantime.

rillig@ / leot@ , let me know if this looks good and if anything else
is blocking it from putting it into pkgsrc-current.

P.S: Apologies for the delay in replies, real life has been keeping me busy.
