Here's what's wrong. You do have distfiles and packages directories in
pkgsrc/ but they do not contain the proper CVS files, even though they
are still mentioned in pkgsrc/CVS/Entries.

Since you say that your distfiles are somewhere else anyway, just do:
cd /home/richard/src/pkgsrc && rm -rf distfiles packages && cvs up distfiles packages
and you should be fine.
