pkgsrc requires a new version of pkg_install (for the obvious reason), however, it doesn't succeed compiling because it lacks the rules to compile a certain file:

cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DDEF_LOG_DIR=\"/var/db/pkg\" -DTAR_CMD=\""/bin/tar"\" -DFTP_CMD=\""/usr/bin/ftp"\" -DDEF_UMASK=0022 -I/usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work/libnbcompat -I. -I. -O2 -c automatic.c
cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DDEF_LOG_DIR=\"/var/db/pkg\" -DTAR_CMD=\""/bin/tar"\" -DFTP_CMD=\""/usr/bin/ftp"\" -DDEF_UMASK=0022 -I/usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work/libnbcompat -I. -I. -O2 -c dewey.c
make: don't know how to make exec.o. Stop

Looking at the Makefile in pkg_install/lib, it seems that exec.o was removed but still turns up in the Makefile. Removing the entry in the Makefile fixes it.
cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install && make
