Did you have a crash? So first, make a backup :-) Then, the following may help, but you may end up with no packages. Look in /var/db/pkg. If you find directories with no +CONTENTS, then rm -rf them. This removes the record of the package being installed. Keep a list of packages that you do this to. Run "pkg_admin check". Keep looking for broken /var/db/pkg dirs and removing them. pkg_admin rebuild-tree and pkg_admin rebuild may be helpful as well (you may find that you have packages listed in +REQUIRED_BY that are not installed). Then, install pkg_rolling-replace, read the man page, and read the archives for all the discussion about it :-). (I find that 'make update' is too scary.) Do 'make package' for packages that you removed the db directory for. Or, make a list of all the packages you want, and back up /usr/pkg/etc rm -rf /usr/pkg rm -rf /var/db/pkg/* start over building what you want.
