>Description:
Section 15.2 of the pkgsrc guide gives a good intro to handling config files when making a pkg, but fails to mention the following clearly:
the conf file needs to end up in +FILES of the installed pkg so that it's checked before deleting but the default config file should go into the examples/ hierarchy.

And also fails to mention the easiest way to make that happen:
INSTALL_MAKE_FLAGS+= ${MAKE_FLAGS} sysconfdir=${EGDIR:Q} can be added to the Makefile if EGDIR is defined as EGDIR= ${PREFIX}/share/examples/${PKGBASE}

And a good thing to add would be:
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --sysconfdir=${PKG_SYSCONFDIR:Q}/${PKGBASE}
MAKE_DIRS+=             ${PKG_SYSCONFDIR:Q}/${PKGBASE}

The directory must be made since INSTALL was overridden and will not make it automatically.  (but that's somewhat optional because you could just use PKG_SYSCONFDIR without the PKGBASE)

 For this, followings should be used instead:
 PKG_SYSCONFSUBDIR=	${PKGBASE}
 CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--sysconfdir=${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}
