ok, I seem to have gotten it working by doing this:

1. fix the /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/Makefile by changing the line
PREFIX:=                ${PKG_TOOLS_BIN:C|/[^/]?bin$||
PREFIX:=                ${PKG_TOOLS_BIN}:C|/[^/]?bin$||

2. make from /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install

3. cd to /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work/pkg_install-20030111 and do 
a "make install" there

4. find the resulting binaries in /usr/pkg/sbin and move them to /usr/sbin

it's working for now...
