Did you actually read that bug? It builds fine with WRKDIRPREFIX defined
or pkg-fallout@ would complain as poudriere relies on WRKDIRPREFIX
working correctly. So, the issue is only with symlinks and the most
egregious example is a historic quirk FreeBSD cannot get rid of. ;\

I may need to file a bug upstream but it's a low priority because why one
would want a symlink for MOZ_OBJDIR if they can override it via environment.
