I've seen some funny things with WRKDIRPREFIX too, but I can't reproduce
them. I've mostly seen it on my chroot tinderbox, which always runs with
WRKDIRPREFIX set because the ports tree is mounted read-only. The
tinderbox is currently broken for other reasons.

	I tried unsetting the environment variable, and it died in exactly the 
same way.  Which brings me back to:
