I'm just focusing on the message above: can it be that, while installing
the package, it is trying to overwrite a file which it is executing
right now? That tends to fail. In this case, .../bin/nbcpio. The
archivers/pax package creates nbpax and nbtar as hardlink to nbcpio, so
if any of those is running, it counts too.

I'm not really familiar with pkgsrc bootstraps, so I'm not sure how
plausible this scenario is.
