Do you have any diagnostic steps I can do to figure out what happened?

I fetched a fresh copy of pkg-1.17.5~d6f9535722.pkg from the public repo 
and installed it using pkg-static, but that didn't fix the problem.

I can at least confirm this only happens on one particular system.  I 
have 15 systems all using the same private pkg repo, and only one has 
this problem.
