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,
I think).

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:

cd /usr/ports/devel/portlint 
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"
