My patches in PR 22514 add more specific @pkgdep and @blddep lines to
the generated syspkgs (instead of the "-[0-9]*" dependencies that were
there before).  However, pkg_add doesn't install syspkgs correctly
(directories that exist in the syspkg foo.tgz files do not get created
by pkg_add), so you are still stuck.
