While we in MirPorts don't need¹ it, I think you can override it
by specifying make sysconfdir=/usr/pkg/share/examples/lynx install
(that would be ${FAKE_FLAGS} in mirports, no idea about pkgsrc).

Do you still install to / directly (if pkgviews aren't used)?

¹) Since we do fake installs, /etc is never directly overwritten²,
   and I was lazy and did a mv ${WRKINST}${SYSCONFDIR}/lynx.*
   ${PREFIX}/share/examples/lynx/ in post-install in our port.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
