System: NetBSD 7.99.18 NetBSD 7.99.18 (ERLITE) #32: Mon Jun 8 21:14:35 CEST 2015 evbmips
Architecture: mips64eb
Machine: evbmips

The x11/rxvt package has a hack (maybe even introduced by myself) that tries
to install a suplied default config file by checking wether it exists already
in the target directory. This used to work fine in the ancient days, but with
DESTDIR/staged installs and binary pkgs it does not make any sense at all.

Please someone fix it and apply stock config file handling to the "Rxvt"


Try to build the pkg while it is already installed on the build machine.

See this sniplet in the makefile:

INSTALLATION_DIRS=	lib/X11/app-defaults

	if [ ! -f ${PREFIX}/lib/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt ]; then \
		${INSTALL_DATA} ${FILESDIR}/Rxvt ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX}/lib/X11/app-defaults; \
