You may need to resort to this option to pkg_delete:

     -N      Remove the package's registration and its entries from the
             package database, but leave the files installed.  Don't run any
             deinstall scripts or @unexec lines either.

Or maybe you have a pkg database both in /var/db/pkg (and pkg.refcount)
and /usr/pkg/pkgdb. In that case the administration of which packages
are installed gets rather confused...
