${INSTALL_COOKIE} and shared /usr/ports

Could ${INSTALL_COOKIE} include the hostname? If you do make install on
one box, and then want to install the port on another one that has the
/usr/ports tree nfs-mounted, it'll report that the port is already
installed. This is problematic with ports that have lots of runtime
dependencies, and I had recently quite some of this fun (finding all the
p5-* ports that needed to have the install cookie removed: my /usr/ports
is quite messy) with amavisd-new that I built and installed on one
system and then wanted to install it on another.

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
