FreeBSD zeus.vwsoft.com 7.0-CURRENT-200706 FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT-200706 #0: Sun Jun  3 18:41:02 UTC 2007     root at almeida.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
>Description:
At the end of the installation process pkg-install asks the user for running bsdstats. pkg-install is unable to start the script as ${LOCALBASE} isn't set in the environment.

As a workaround, the following patch makes sure ${LOCALBASE} is at least there with a default value (not that clever will work as long as /usr/local is the default).
>How-To-Repeat:
 make install clean

===>  Patching for bsdstats-5.3_4
===>  Configuring for bsdstats-5.3_4
