>Description:
I tried to change a package using EVAL_PREFIX but this variable does not seem used any more (grep -R "EVAL_PREFIX" /usr/pkgsrc/mk/* gives nothing).

For instance /usr/pkgsrc/mk/compiler/f2c:
--- pkgsrc/mk/compiler/f2c.mk	2013/05/09 23:37:26	1.16

Then I replaced EVAL_PREFIX by LOCALBASE but pkglint tells me that the LOCALBASE variable should not be used by packages and gives me some examples using EVAL_PREFIX. EVAL_PREFIX is also described in the pkgsrc guide.

Either pkgsrc is broken or both pkglint and documentation has to be fixed.
