- Support continuing to install to /var/db/pkg if it exists and the
new pkgdb doesn't.
In the future, we can warn about this once we have tested advice that
we can give to users who want to move the location of pkgdb.

- Don't do anything about /var/db/pkg on non-NetBSD-base.
This creates conflicts with other package managers that also install to
/var/db/pkg.

Log message:
pkg_install: Introduce support for CHECK_OS_VERSION.

When set to "no", pkg_add will not issue a warning if the host OS \ 
version does
not exactly match the OS version the package was built on.  This can be useful
on many OS where the kernel release version has nothing to do with userland
compatibility, or where it may differ without being ABI incompatible.

Ultimately it would be ideal if the version checks were smart enough across all
our supported OS to not need this, but until then this is useful for users who
know what they're doing.

Bump version to 20201211.
