Probably the two parallel downloads wrote to the same file,
or similar lossage. "Don't do this" :)

This has been fixed in the meantime, cvs update and it should be gone.

You're confusing two different things:
The first one is the distfile (the original file by the authors,
source code) the second is a binary package (the compiled code
for NetBSD) (and of a different version).

If you want to compile teTeX3 for yourself, just go to
/usr/pkgsrc/print/teTeX3-bin and 'make install'. Or
to add the pre-compiled binary package.

I recommend reading the pkgsrc guide:
