Crippling pkgsrc is a no-go. Especially with "native" package installers
that don't have any way of ensuring content integrity.

Let me guess: you don't have all of the necessary development headers
installed, so pkgsrc tries to install its own set. At the same time, the
f**ked up shared library lookup in some Python extensions decided that
it should mix in part of the "base" system and havoc resulted. That's
not really an argument in favor of pip, just an argument in favor of
kicking upstreams.
