I reveal my ignorance: why does this work to delete the package

       # pkg_delete -f /var/db/pkg/py24-gobject*

while 'pkg_delete  py24-gobject*' did not?

Would the latter have done the trick if issued from the /var/db/pkg
directory itself?

In any event your solution does seem to have worked.

Thank you for helping.

Have a good day--
