Regression in PREFIX handling in packages

I detected a regression in the handling of the registration of the
PREFIX in packages. I'm not sure when it was introduced, surely more
than a month ago.
- I have a symlink from /usr/local to another place X.
- I share packages between this system A and some jails.
- The jails don't have place X and /usr/local is no symlink.
- Packages generated on the system A are installed into place X in
So in short: the realpath of PREFIX is recorded in the packages, not
the value of PREFIX as before.
I had a quick look at bsd.*.mk, but didn't notice something obvious. So
in case it is pkg_create which is doing this, I updated from r238438
