I've not looked through the other patches, but I don't think any changes

default linker paths. Programs don't have to be aware of where the
default catalog is, the library is configured to know when it's built.

Programs - or more specifically, installation mechanisms for those programs - certainly do need to know where the default catalog resides.

Yes, but in the case of NetBSD's pkgsrc, the "installation mechanism"
knows where the catalog is - after all, it's part of the system that set
the catalog's location.

And how can my program - netperf4 - learn where NetBSD decided to stash the catalog?
