Notice that it says "insttmp.21727a". This is broken.
I had same problem. I am guessing you are using pkg_install tools from
before February 2005. They are broken. It will cause problems such as not
cleaning up on pkg_delete. I had reported this and suggested
that there should be some mechanism to notify if using these old tools.
I don't know if this is related to your problem. But please consider
updating pkg_install (on this target system) and trying again.
