I do prefer the environnement variable because the users that are using pkg_*
tools for some reason we can't imagine (there is always cases) can safely use it
without this warning.

btw this one of the reason a minimum of 1 month before MFC was necessary :D

Sorry for this I should have thought about it when reviewing the patch that
added this warning, I completly forgot about this case.

If no one sent to portmgr a patch since then, I'll write a patch to allow to fix
this on monday.
