That's a problem with the underlying ports, and should be reported as a
bug to their maintainers.  pkgng is stricter about such things than
pkg_tools, hence a number of cases coming to light as pkgng usage starts
to ramp up.

pkgng uses sysexits.h for almost all of its error codes. 70 is
EX_SOFTWARE.  See sysexits(3).  Unfortunately, the error descriptions in
that manual page are so generic it doesn't really tell you anything much
about what actually went wrong.  There should be some sort of error
message though.
