It's normal when you have buildlink3 with multiple different notions of the
least possible package versions. The build and install chooses a dependency
that satisfies all the given version constraints. For example, above,
"png-1.2.4" is not good enough of a dependency for the package as a whole;
you need at least "png-1.2.6nb1".

Currently pkgsrc doesn't have the ability to filter it to only the "highest"
dependency, so it simply records all constraints.
