Hm? I've seen lots of responses explaining the problem and multiple
solutions (upgrade system to 4.7 or later, upgrade pkg_* tools). You
are running an old version of FreeBSD which the ports tree no longer
supports (although someone mentioned they were looking at a workaround,

Building and installing in /usr/src/pkg_install installs pkg_add,
pkg_check, pkg_create, pkg_delete, pkg_info, pkg_sign, and pkg_version.

You sure? Are you failing with this error:
===> Checking if portd/portname already installed
*** Error code 1
This is almost certainly caused by an old pkg_info command that does
not understand -O. To disprove me:
ktrace -di make install
kdump | tail -60
and let us see those 60 lines, plus the output of "pkg_info -O" and
"ident /usr/sbin/pkg_info | grep info"
