I gather that you are looking under /var/db/pkg...?

I'm trying to remove from packages from long ago and find and
        print them with

        ls -lt | awk '{if ($8 == 2006) print $9}';

        but what I want to remove the file pointed at by $9.  I've tried
        FILE=ARGV[9]; and using FILE within my system() call, but no-joy.
        What's the magic here?

You could pipe the output of awk through "| xargs rm -rf"...but be careful.
Putting it through "pkg_delete (-f)" might be safer.
