I have just added an FAQ entry to the pkgsrc guide, which should be 
online in about an hour. It will then be available at:

7.18. What does “Makefile appears to contain unresolved cvs/rcs/??? 
merge conflicts” mean?

You have modified a file from pkgsrc, and someone else has modified that 
same file afterwards in the CVS repository. Both changes are in the same 
region of the file, so when you updated pkgsrc, the cvs command marked 
the conflicting changes in the file. Because of these markers, the file 
is no longer a valid Makefile.

Have a look at that file, and if you don't need your local changes 
anymore, you can remove that file and run cvs -q update -dP in that 
directory to download the current version.
