  - Is your ports tree up to date?

  - Are you using any special options on the command line?

  - Does your make.conf set NO_MTREE?

The only case for ln(1) to get an -h option that I could track in the
pkg_install installation comes from `' in `/usr/ports/Mk'
and is not normally enabled (unless you explicitly set NO_MTREE in
your make.conf file).
