Fixed, thanks. Two more issues:

1) The info files were not installed.

Use "make install-info" to install the info pages.
# Todo: make sure user "uucp" exists
/usr/ucb/install -d -o root -g sys -m 555 /var/spool/uucp
/usr/bin/chmod 755 /var/spool/uucp
/usr/bin/chown uucp /var/spool/uucp
/usr/ucb/install -d -o root -g sys -m 555 /var/spool/uucppublic
/usr/bin/chmod 1777 /var/spool/uucppublic
/usr/bin/chown uucp /var/spool/uucppublic
===> Registering installation for uucp-1.06.2
[hauke@pizza] /<3>comms/ # make install-info
make: don't know how to make install-info. Stop

make: stopped in /usr/bsdsrc/pkgsrc/comms/

2)  Trying to remove the package gave me

[hauke@pizza] /<3>comms/ # pkg_delete uucp-1.06.2
sh: syntax error at line 1: `)' unexpected
pkg_delete: unexec command for `/usr/bin/rmdir ${UUCP_NEWCONFIGDIR)' failed
pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package (perhaps the packing list is
incorrectly specified?)
