Your freshly-created jail has pkg installed. `pkg config ABI` only works if pkg has been bootstrapped. Getting the ABI string with just the /usr/sbin/pkg stub available is another thing entirely, even though that stub program necessarily has the code to determine the ABI string. I ended up writing a small program that replicates the ELF-divining logic in pkg and prints the value of ABI. IMO the stub should have the `pkg config ABI` functionality added to it, but I'm probably alone in thinking that would be useful.
