User checkouts are even more rare then NFS mounts, and suffer the same

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.
