I've redone the install, this time logging all the output to a file. I've since grepped it all for "failed", and it seems that the docbook is the first to fail, which stops scrollkeeper from installing, causing most other things to break.
>From the output file
pkg_add: extract_plist: Bogus filename "share/doc/docbook-xsl/html/htmlhelp.hhp.windows'.html"
pkg_add: pkg_add of dependency 'docbook-xsl-1.65.1' failed!
Any suggestions for a fix, I really need to get this machine in a usable state sometime soon.
