This seems to be broken with current (with the new pkg_install)
vs. building from source from pkgsrc-quarterly

The new tools use the new location by default, but the quarterly
branch uses PKG_DBDIR?=/var/db/pkg, so when you build packages the
build process looks (and writes) to the wrong place.  So you need 
PKG_DBDIR=/usr/pkg/pkgdb in mk.conf
