You're quire right.  pkg lives in .../sbin.  Sorry about that.

Well, the tests show that the problem is not a completely hosed package
database, which is good.

So, the problem is confined to the p5-XML-SAX and p5-XML-SAX-Base ports.
 You're trying to follow the instructions in the 20120512
entry in UPDATING?  And the initial 'pkg delete' of p5-XML-SAX is
showing the errors?

You can check eg. what XML related packages are installed by:

   pkg info -x XML

If it doesn't show p5-XML-SAX then I'd say you're good to go, and can
just reinstall p5-XML-SAX and p5-XML-SAX-Base and everything should be fine.
