Subject: pkg_* tools gone bananas ?

My pkg_* tools seem to have lost track of what's installed somehow.

(current as of this afternoon, but has been like this for a day or two).

0rasputin@lb:usr$ pkg_chk -vi
exim-user-4.10nb1: version mismatch - exim-user-4.10nb1

gmake-3.80nb2: OK
expat-1.95.6nb1: OK
libmm-1.2.2: OK
apache-1.3.28: OK
0rasputin@lb:usr$ pkg_info -a|wc -l

also 'make install' in /usr/pkgsrc seems to want to reinstall all
dependencies, even though pkg_info can see they are there.
It looks to me like there are two different package databases.

How did I get in this mess, and more importantly how do I get out?
