You're right, they only respect PKG_PREFIX.

It's not very difficult; Horde does it: pkg-deinstall is defined as
SUB_FILES, and the needed strings are replaced by SUB_LIST. There is no
more pkg-deinstall but a files/pkg-deinstall.in.

If you don't succeed in writing these patches, let me know, I shall do

Anyway, thanks for the report!
Th. Thomas.
