Make sure your build path doesn't have a symlink.   cd to `pwd -P` to

I have a symlink /usr/pkg -> /opt/pkg, could this cause the issue,
since the headers will be under /usr/pkg/include?

Are there known issues with pkgsrc and symlinks?

Yes, there are known issues, see the lengthy comment in
bootstrap/bootstrap, in the function checkarg_no_symlink_path.

To make sure that everything is ok regarding the symlinks, please
describe your setup in more detail, since you are quite close to a
configuration that is known to not work.

When you say "I have a symlink /usr/pkg -> /opt/pkg", this can mean:

LOCALBASE=      /opt/pkg        # this is ok
VARBASE=        /opt/pkg/var    # this is ok

It could also mean:

LOCALBASE=      /usr/pkg        # this is bad
VARBASE=        /usr/pkg/var    # this is bad

In the first of these configurations, the whole pkgsrc build process
works whether the symlink exists or not. Therefore everything will be fine.

In the second of these configurations, the buildlink wrappers that
install the headers and libraries into WRKDIR/.buildlink during a
package build will just skip these.

Another way to mess up everything would be to start with /opt/pkg for
the first few packages and later add the symlink and change LOCALBASE to
the symlink.
