I performed an rm -r on /var/lib/pkg

Call it a moment of sheer stupidity, call it a misremembering, call it
whatever you want (and I imagine I'll hear a few different ones), but I
just did an rm -r /var/lib/pkg.

Before I type anything to damage things further, does anyone have any
suggestions as to how to recover from this? I have other FreeBSD boxes
available to me, none with the same pkg list, though. I'll be reading
man pkgdb in the meantime..
