  pkg info -R -F hugin-2016.0.0_1.txz

for a nicely indented version of the manifest.  I can't see anything
obviously wrong with the manifest myself.

The next thing to do is try installinq the package with debugging enabled:

  env DEBUG_LEVEL=4 pkg install hugin

This will generate voluminous output, which might show what the problem
is to someone experienced in such things.  If you can stick the output
on a pasteboard site somewhere and raise a ticket through that would be great.
