There are various things it could say that are not nonsense, such as
ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
ERROR: foo-1.0 has an unacceptable license condition:
ERROR: foo-license AND bar-license AND modified-bsd
ERROR: The following license(s) are not accepted:
ERROR: foo-license bar-license
ERROR: To build this package you must accept some suitable combination
ERROR: of these. To accept a license called ``license'', add
ERROR: ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES+= license
ERROR: to /etc/mk.conf or add
ERROR: ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES= license
ERROR: to /usr/pkg/etc/pkg_install.conf.
