You're using sysinstall(8) to install some packages. An error has
occurred. Now, if you're actually using sysinstall to install the
system, you can hit Alt-F2 to switch to an alternate console where
there should be a load of debug output which will hopefully tell you
exactly what went wrong.
On the other hand, if you're just running sysinstall(8) from the
command line as a system admin tool, then that output is not actually
accessible. In this case, using 'pkg_add' directly from the command
line will give you a better idea of what's going on:
# pkg_add -r pkgname
If you can't work out what the package name should be, take a look at
http://www.freshports.org/ the 'port details' screen very helpfully
tells you exactly what to type.
