OK, 2 more idea.
1) try to ktrace the failing command, to try to see which file is corrupt.
  ktrace -i make install 
  This will generate a large trace file, though, including the infos for
  make and all its childrens.
2) maybe it's just /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.byfile.db which is corrupt. Remove
   it and rebuild: pkg_admin rebuild
