Maybe.  However, what I didn't say was that before the above
attempt, I built the in-tree pkg_install from HEAD and installed
it in the chroot's /usr/sbin, but that didn't make an iota of
difference.  So the cause for the cyclic dependency is still a
bit of a mystery to me.

I'll also perhaps have to admit that I've not re-bootstrapped
pbulk when going from pkgsrc-2023Q1 to pkgsrc-current.  The
pkg_install in /usr/pbulk/sbin is 20211115, the one in /usr/sbin
is 20210410, and the "main" pkg chroot doesn't appear to have
pkg_install installed in /usr/pkg at all.

The build log does not mention pkg_install, but cwrappers has
been re-built.

I'm going to spin up a 9.0 build soonish (after the current
upload round is done), and will check if that works as well then.
