I get your point. I did ldd in bin directory of texlive installation and
found nothing pointing to pkg. So looks like the distro is fine. I might
have messed up my base. But not sure how. The only operation that touched
the base was i386->amd64, but I believe it was alright.

I installed texlive amd64 now and the error is gone. Now I see ldd
pointing the erstwhile missing library to
May be he library was there. I was (wrongly) searching in /usr/pkg/lib.
And the library must be amd64, hence the i386 installation was complaining
But now I libfreetype.so.7 as unmet dependency. I checked, I seem to have
i386 version of it.
I am unsure how x11 libraries ended up being a mix of amd64 and i386.
Will try a clean install of x11 sets.
