Nothing... but there is a PLIST file in the package directory.

I'm trying to create a tcfs package. It builds fine, but won't install.
However, I'm running into the same problems installing any other package,
such as pkgtools/pkgdiff or security/cfs.
I tried "touch /usr/pkg/PLIST" but then it complains about not being able
to find /usr/pkg/DESCR. Why is it not using the PLIST in
/usr/pkgsrc/security/cfs, which is where I'm running "make install"?
Relevant history so far:
upgraded in-place from old NetBSD (1.4) to 1.6, then 1.6.1, then 1.6.2
untarred pkgsrc.tar.gz to /usr/pkgsrc
created a package /usr/pkgsrsc/security/tcfs; won't install b/c of this error
tried installing extant packages like cfs; same problem
