Could it be, that the pkg binary isn't installed in $LOCALBASE/sbin/pkg,
(whatever LOCALBASE is at that point)? This would make pkg --version
shows its bootstrap message: 

  The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.
  Do you want to fetch and install it now? [y/N]: 

which could explain the behavior.

Just speculating...
