I wonder, is "${TEST} -d ${.TARGET:H} || ${MKDIR} ${.TARGET:H}" really faster than just "${MKDIR} ${.TARGET:H}"?

If it's only ever called once then no, but if there's any chance it might be called more than once then yes it makes a difference.

Currently every package build is running "mkdir ${WRKDIR}/.pkginstall" at least 21 times, for example.

Might not take that long in isolation, but this work is really about making lots of small changes add up to a huge improvement.
