pkg install order dependency problem

Short version: If you make a pkg repo with poudriere that includes
java/diablo-jdk16 and tell pkg to install it, it knows pkgconf is a
dep of xproto but it installs it in the wrong order so it fails.
diablo-jdk16 is not on pkgbeta so I cannot test with that repo.
I realize there are other jdk choices but this issue is about why
pkg would get the install order wrong (it also seems to be missing
a newline on the error).  Please let me know if I can provide more
information or test something.  Thanks.

This is on a recent 9.x-amd64 test system with no packages old or new:

root at test:/root # env PACKAGESITE="http://my.local.server/pkg/freebsd:9:x86:64/latest" pkg update
The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.
Do you want to fetch and install it now? [y/N]: y
Bootstrapping pkg please wait

If I go ahead and install pkgconf manually, xproto and thus diablo-jdk succeed.

Interestingly, if I only request to install xproto, it gets the order right:


root at test:/root # pkg install xproto
