I'm pretty sure it was not intended as it fails because of an
undefined variable global_install in getarchprefix.

`global_install' undefined near line 26 column 7
error: called from `getarchprefix' in file /home/carandraug/development/octave/scripts/pkg/private/getarchprefix.m near line 26, column 3
error: called from:
error:   /home/carandraug/development/octave/scripts/pkg/private/install.m at line 243, column 5
error:   /home/carandraug/development/octave/scripts/pkg/pkg.m at line 389, column 9

Also, this does not occur with the stable branch only on default so splitting it into several files must have changed something else.

Thank you very much for looking into this!

The call to getarchprefix was not introduced by the recent
changes to pkg.m but it is there since the very beginning
when create_pkgadddel was introduced with this cset:

are you sure the behaviour was not intended? what error does
the present code produce?

I was looking into the new organitzaion of the pkg and found a small bug. This is against the default branch. It's a really small thing.
