Thanks to David Holland for info on this issue.  It seems that this can
happen if the pkgsrc db directory exists but is empty or corrupt.  I
fixed this by running "pkg_admin rebuild"  and all the packages ran
again.  Posting answer here for future searches.

I did happen to notice while doing this that xulrunner has a PLIST
error. I will check it tomorrow and fix that up.
