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?
