I had a similar problem, but the issue turned out to be stale state in
/usr/pkg/etc/texmf referring to a file that should no longer present.  I
removed all my tex packages, cleaned out everyting in etc/texmf, and
reinstalled from the binary packages I had saved when updating, and then
all was well.
