  It should not be installed automatically. What package(s) were you
  building when this happened?

None - it was in the makeroot stage.  In pkg_comp, see makeroot_x11(),
called unconditionally from makeroot(), which builds the pkg if the
chroot has x sets.

  digest is required for checking checksums.

Sure, but doesn't pkgsrc build it when it needs it?
