Thanks for the hint. I noticed that I have some TTF fonts in
/usr/pkg/lib/X11/fonts/TTF which are not from the ms-ttf package. If
I remove these fonts, adding and deleting the ms-ttf package works
fine without ttmkfdir dumping core. If these local fonts exist in the
TTF directory, adding ms-ttf once works fine, but deleting and
subsequently re-adding it makes ttmkfdir dump core.
Hmm, I should probably move these local fonts to /usr/local/...
