 I got :
 ===> Installing dependencies for pkg_install-20060720
=> Registering installation for pkg_install-20060720
===> Cleaning for pkg_install-20060720
===> Installing packages(7) man page

ERROR: Please unset PKG_PATH before doing pkgsrc work!
*** Error code 255

bmake: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkgmanpages
===> exited with status 1

Thank you
