Must have missed something here....
did a cvs checkout of pkgsrc
did ./bootstrap --pkgdbdir /usr/pkg/pkgdb
moved orig pkg files and tried pkg PATH elements in front
and behind the regular path but no packages will build...
typically I get output like this...

# cd /usr/pkgsrc/www/apache/ && make install 
Unknown modifier 'u'

"/usr/pkgsrc/www/apache/../../mk/platform/", line 17: Malformed conditional (${OBJECT_FMT} == "ELF")
"/usr/pkgsrc/www/apache/../../mk/platform/", line 17: Need an operator
Unknown modifier '1'

Unknown modifier '1'

Unknown modifier '1'

"../../mk/", line 602: Could not find /mk/wrapper/
"../../mk/", line 605: Could not find /mk/
"../../mk/", line 610: if-less endif
"../../mk/", line 610: Need an operator
Unknown modifier 'u'

Variable PKG_OPTIONS is recursive.

# which pkg_add pkg_create pkg_delete pkg_info

# echo $PATH 

/etc/rc.conf is nominal and there is no mk.conf
this is a FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE jail. Any ideas?
