When you do a :
mv /var/db/pkg /var/db/pkg.back
also do a :
mkdir /var/db/pkg && cp -pr /var/db/pkg.back/* /var/db/pkg
before you install? Then do a :
rm -r /var/db/pkg && mv /var/db/pkg.back /var/db/pkg afterward?
Then again, an install of the package followed by a `pkg_delete` should
return the files in /var/db/pkg to their original state, so you could just
leave them in place.
Alternatively, you could leave /usr/pkg in place and do (say) an ls -R
before and after and diff the two. Or pipe (or tee) the installation into
a file and grep for install/cp/mv in that file?
