I think I see what the problem here is:

===>>> Deleting installed build-only dependencies
The following packages will be deinstalled:

The deinstallation will require 0 B more space
Deinstalling pkg-1.0.b1... done
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found
/usr/local/sbin/portmaster: /usr/local/sbin/pkg: not found


Also that deinstall list should have several more packages on it, not
just pkg-1.0.b1.

Hmmm... does this have to do with fix in revision 1.705 of bsd.port.mk?
Let me try yet again with that update in place.

Actually, here's a feature request for pkgng -- can we have:

   pkg lock pkgname...


   pkg unlock pkgname...

where pkgng will refuse to modify or delete a locked package?  I see
this as mostly bullet-proof-shoes to be applied as required by system
administrators, but automatically locking pkgng on install makes sense
to me.
