It built for me, not that this really helps.  (on netbsd-8)

So pkgin needs libfetch, and it basically invokes the "build libfetch"
subroutine.  For debugging, I would try to figure out one thing at a

General advice is to remove all work directories before retrying.  stale
work dirs cause vast amounts of trouble.

then, I'd try to 'make package' in libfetch, and save the output, and
then go looking into that and the error.

In my case, I see fetch.0 in the PLIST but it is not in .destdir/ but
that is ok -- there are different rules on different systems about
whether man pages are source or bin, and I don't follow how that
interacts with PLIST.

Do you have an /etc/mk.conf file or one in /usr/pkgsrc/etc/mk.conf, and
what is in it?
