I replied privately and Chavdar indicated that the following
advice, mentioned in a recent thread on OSABI by Patrick Welche, works
for him:

Add CHECK_OSABI=no to /etc/pkg_install.conf

It might be worth an FAQ entry, since the 7.0.1 binary packages are
symlinked to the 7.0 binary packages and the osabi package would be
"wrong" for 7.0.1.
