why does pkgmk exports PKG and SRC?

Hi, everyone, I've just encountered a weird bug when I'm making a port, the
configure script works fine if I run it by hand, but always fail if it was
invoked inside pkgmk. After digging for a while, I found out that the configure
script uses the shell variable PKG internally. Checked pkgmk, I see that pkgmk
exports PKG and SRC before calling build().
Relevant code in pkgmk:
make_work_dir # here export PKG and SRC
(set -e -x ; build)
I think it's better to change that to:
make_work_dir # do not export
(set -e -x; PKG=$PKG SRC=$SRC build)
I don't know if this change would affect other things.
Without making any change in pkgmk, my port currently looks like:
... # build using $pkg
