Can one of either pkg_install or pkgsrc/mk be changed now to cater for
the change in advance, at the other changed "soon" (maybe before 2020Q1
or before next . releases of netbsd-8 and nebsd-9?) so that something
can be put in place to deal with the old and new locations without as
much manual hand holding?  And that deals cleanly with people who have
already made the change?

[ Note: still on pkgsrc-2020Q3 so haven't actually had to deal with this
yet. ]
