--- Comment #3 from lidl at pix.net ---
I see, after looking at this a bit more, that the problem is twofold:

1) 'pkg which' fails because the the .ph files are generated not
    during the package staging, but rather as part of the post-install
    script that is run when the package is installed.

2) I was doing a 'pkg -c dir ... -y install', and had only enough stuff
   under 'dir' to allow the chroot to succeed.  Which is /bin/sh and
   three shared libraries.  Because there was not a /usr/include directory,
   there were not any .ph files generated.

Both of these are surprising to me.

That files get installed/created and not attributed to a package seems
wrong.  And that the .ph files rely on the /usr/include hierarchy of the
target machine where they are being installed also seems kinda wrong.
