The "digest" thing is brand new, and clearly there's a snag...

While the fix is being considered, I suggest you roll back "pkgsrc/mk"
e.g. "cd /usr/pkgsrc/mk; cvs update -Dyesterday". This will let you
install "pkgtools/digest", or else do whatever you were going to do.
The next update, use "cvs update -A" to clear the date tags.
