Help heard.

The error message may look slightly misleading. What you are being told is
*NOT* that the system cannot find /usr/bin/env but that something incorrect
is passed to /usr/bin/env. Have a look at the post-install-script target in
mk/ in your pkgsrc tree. From the above it looks like that
is where your install is failing. 

Try setting your PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL to 2 in mk.conf to see what commands are
executed or if you're machocistic, truss -t open,exec -f make install to
see what's going on ;)
