It's correct that is not included directly.  The usual way is
to include the file, and the pkgsrc infrastructure then
includes the corresponding file.

Curiously, the pkgsrc guide doesn't mention this anywhere, but pkglint
would spit out an error if you tried to do that.

Have a look at the pkgsrc guide, it describes how to force pkgsrc to
select either the native or the pkgsrc variant of a package.

If that doesn't work, the file is probably broken.  If your
system has a working libuuid, it should be possible to select it.
