Cyclic dependency for package:

After digging around a bit, I think this is the thing which made
a difference, to avoid this chicken-and-egg issue:

Presumably this is because the NetBSD 8.0 pkg_install is too old, in which case I think I'd prefer to add


to cwrappers, as it's more important that pkg_install gets built correctly, and we really should be removing the old shell wrappers at some point.
