Strange errors

While trying to narrow down some other issues I've been seeing (with installing lang/rust package) I am seeing some strange behavior.

I'm using a sandbox created by the pkgtools/mksandbox package. Using a completely new and empty sandbox, I try to install devel/libuv

It correctly installs dependecies for pkgtools/digest and devel/libtool-base, then proceeds to attempt to install devel/automake
It gets to the end of the build, and then gets the following errors:

=> Automatic manual page handling
=> Generating post-install file lists
pkg_info: can't find package `autoconf-2.69nb7'
pkg_info: can't find package `m4-1.4.18'
pkg_info: can't find package `perl-5.26.1'
=> Checking file-check results for automake-1.15.1

pkg_add: no pkg found for 'autoconf>=2.62', sorry.
pkg_add: Can't install dependency autoconf>=2.62

*** Error code 1


It would appear that something in the pkgsrc infrastructure now needs to use m4 and/or perl, yet these packages have not been built. Shouldn't there be some sort of "bootstrap" process that installs packages that are needed by pkgsrc itself?

Or am I misunderstanding the error messages?
