That won't ever work. /usr/pbulk needs to be its own independent
pkgsrc installation; it is to hold pbulk in an external container so
pbulk doesn't trash itself when it rearranges the default
installation for building.

That is not true if you give it a bootstrap kit; then it can (and
should) use the pkg_install in the bootstrap kit.
