 The installation is 2+ years old and has been upgraded from 1.6.x -> 
 2.x -> 3.0beta on the way.
 In the end, I manually removed 
 /var/db/pkg/standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1, applied Martin's patch from 
 PR 32171 (which mine is pretty similar to), then ran "pkg_admin 
 rebuid" a few times and cleaned out the fall-out.
 It does a noiseless "Make deinstall && make reinstall" now for standalone-tcsh.
 We'll probably never know what emptied the +CONTENTS file.
 I think the PR can be closed as a duplicate of Martin's 32171.
