I assume I'm not the first person to have noticed this.  How do you deal
with it to get those following packages building too?

The way pbulk does it is by clearing /usr/pkg and unpacking a
bootstrap tarball before _each_ package is built.


Okay, I checked the bootstrap. It's only dealing with /usr/pkg as you said. The problem is with /var/qmail, not /usr/pkg/var/qmail, so the bootstrap isn't coming into play here.
