Err. This works great until the next system update. At which point the
system pkg_* binaries will be re-instated and break everything. Unless
you are going to ensure that /usr/sbin/pkg_* are going to be updated not
just in current but also in the 9, 8 and 7 release branches which are
all still supported.

Yeah, I'm sorry that you spent too much time on this.
Actually, the easiest way is to just:
make USE_CWRAPPERS=no install
install -c /usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_* /usr/sbin
Any solution that overwrites core binaries with a binary from pkgsrc
won't survive an OS upgrade.
As others have said this is starting to look like the consequences of
the change have not been thought through.
