Yeah, that's one of the ways in which it breaks down uncomfortably.
You're using netbsd, right? use mount -t null /usbdisk/usr/pkg /usr/pkg
instead, then the programs are not aware of it happening.

I recall something like this as the explanation for this problem when
someone else had it:

pkgsrc masks some of the paths visible in building
program follows symlinks and uses the actual real path
the real path is masked by pkgsrc, so is silently dropped
