When I attempt to make install any new ports, portupgrade any installed
ports, or pkg_add any new [packagename].tgz files, the following error on
install occurs:  (this is an example using /usr/ports/archivers/nulib, but
it's typical of all the other files/methods for upgrading/installing)

su-2.03# pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/nulib-3.25/
su-2.03# make install
===>  Installing for nulib-3.25
===>   Generating temporary packing list
===>  Checking if archivers/nulib already installed
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/archivers/nulib.

If I set FORCE_PKG_REGISTER="yes" in either a straight up new make install
or as the -m switch in portupgrade, the install runs fine.

I deleted and rebuilt my /var/db/pkg file with portsdb -Uu and ran pkgdb
-F, but neither solved the problem.

I'm open to ideas.
