This is on an empty system trying to build cwrappers.

You must rebuild and replace pkg_install first.

What an awful user experience for a first time user. Oh pkgsrc doesn't work unless you do some special magic first.

Also in this particular case doing that step is actually awkward because the builds are being done by an script (which I've not got to modify to handle this ridiculous special case).
