 Those all seem awfully drastic... although I guess fscking can't hurt.
 Also try cvs update in pkgsrc/mk and make sure nothing's marked
 modified that isn't supposed to be.
 Another good diagnostic step would be to run the install with
 PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 to see what's actually failing. That may make the
 problem obvious.
