There's a stray symlink that prevents any package in pkgsrc-current (downloaded 
2008-Aug-14) from being compiled:

/usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work -> 

0.  cd /usr && ftp -a && 
tar zxvpf pkgsrc.tar.gz -C /usr

1.  "make && make install" any package, and it will fail with an error 
indicating that the "work" file already exists.

unlink /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work
