Your fix doesn't work as it only defines NO_PKGTOOLS_REQD_CHECK for
pkgtools/pkg_install itself, and not the dependancies:
===> Extracting for pkg_install
===> Required package db>=2.7.3: NOT found
===> Verifying reinstall for ../../databases/db
=> Checksum OK for db-2.7.7.tar.gz.
===> Extracting for db-2.7.7nb1
===> Required package libtool-base>=1.4.20010614nb11: NOT found
===> Verifying reinstall for ../../devel/libtool-base

===> The installed package tools were last updated on 2002/08/27.
===> Please "bmake install" in ../../pkgtools/pkg_install.
