    Whatever the default is, it shouldn't be the same place where the pkgsrc
My /usr/pkgsrc is a) not shared b) a user checkout c) on a separate mount (actually part of /usr/pkg).

And I don't back that up either, I don't see any gain in that.  All this stuff can be recreated in little time.

So I think not putting the workdirs somewhere special is a quite okay choice.  Sharing distfiles is clever anyways.  And I don't see why pkgsrc should be readonly shared, if I trust my machines.
