I think Martin's right, but, to check, try


which will give you screenfuls of debugging output and should help
you locate the problem.

Also, you don't have to build packages as root, and doing so can raise
the risks of being caught by one of the configure trojans (which we do
our utmost to prevent, but a little paranoia never hurt anyone). 
pkgsrc will become root at the appropriate time that it needs the
extra privileges, prompting you accordingly.
