parrot_config from lang/parrot references its build directory:
$ parrot_config --dump | grep pkgsrc
build_dir => '/usr/pkgsrc/lang/parrot/work/parrot-1.0.0'
libparrot_ldflags => '-L/usr/pkgsrc/lang/parrot/work/parrot-1.0.0/blib/lib -lparrot'
"build_dir" is probably OK (this makes a build of Rakudo against this Parrot impossible, but that's mainly Rakudo's fault), but "libparrot_ldflags" looks just plain wrong.
In addition under Solaris, the variable "rpath_blib" references the build directory as well, similar to libparrot_ldflags.

I suspect it does... I've tried to bring this up in the parrot
community, but they say something to the effect that "you're not
supposed to use that config variable to get at the parrot lib",
and for some reason they don't think that references to the build
directory in "supposed not to be used" config variables is a bug.
I tend to differ, but it looks like I'm losing that battle.
