This problem should be fixed already.  I just updated pkgsrc too,
although via CVS.  How did you go about updating pkg_install?

I did something like:

	cd pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/
	pkg_delete -v pkg_install
	make install

If you just tried to build from the pkgsrc/pkgtools directory it won't
work.  For some of the tools you may need to go into the tool's own
directory to make and install (like above).

My pkgtools were a few days old, and as far as I know, there have not
been any changes to pkgsrc relevant to this problem since the tar file
you mention was created.
