This is a one-time mess.  Once you have moved your pkgdb and rebuilt
pkg_install, and then you have updated along the NetBSD branch you are
following, you are back to totally ok.

You are of course welcome to bootstrap on NetBSD if that's what you want
to do.  But the standard approach is not to, because the things
bootstrap builds are already  in the base system.
