pkg_create -b makes packages which can't be installed for bsdpan-* packages. An example error is below:

www14# pkg_add bsdpan-CGI-EncryptForm-1.02.tbz 
tar: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/man/man3/CGI::EncryptForm.3: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error opening archive: Empty input file: Inappropriate file type or format
pkg_add: extract_plist: can not invoke 108 byte tar pipeline: /usr/bin/tar cf - /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/man/man3/CGI\:\:EncryptForm.3|/usr/bin/tar --unlink -xpf - -C /
1. Install perl

2. Use (called /usr/local/bin/cpan) to install a package.

3. pkg_create -b bsdpan-whatever

4. pkg_delete the package

5. pkg_add the package via the package file.
