Apart from up dating to newer version, I don't see how upgrading to
6.2 will make a difference. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to
reply.

However, the solution is as follows.
Incidentally, this had nothing to do with pkg_add
And everything to do with FTP and IPFILTER.

My server was opening an additional session using ports > 1024, which
I was not initially allowing.  ipf was blocking outbound due to this
rule. This is a known issue with ftp client sessions using active mode
when behind a firewall.

# Block and Log the first occurance of everything else
block out log first quick on em0 all

Solution.... 
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/firewalls-ipf.html
section 26.5.21.1 IPNAT Rules {or}
section 26.5.21.2 IPNAT FTP Filter Rules

I chose 26.5.21.2 for simplicity. This proabably isn't a  major issue
for me, since the server will be located behind a border (LAN)
firewall.  Basically changed:

# Allow ftp out
pass out quick on em0 proto tcp from any to any port = 20 flags S keep state
pass out quick on em0 proto tcp from any to any port = 21 flags S keep state

{ to...}

# Allow ftp out
pass out quick on em0 proto tcp from any to any port = 21 flags S keep state
pass out quick on em0 proto tcp from any to any port > 1024 flags S keep state

{ and added }

#Allow Active mode data channel from ftp server
pass in quick on em0 proto tcp from any to any port = 20 flags S keep state
