This is an aborted installation or partially removed package. It's missing the
+CONTENTS, which has all the important information.
Seeing as you have 2 versions, it seems safe to remove the 1.4.8_2 directory
in /var/db/pkg. Then run pkgdb -F to update the dependencies. If you want to
be sure everything is in working order, remove the 1.4.8_2 directory,
pkg_delete -f cairomm-*, and reinstall cairomm-1.6.4.
This would make sure that cairomm-1.4.8_2 didn't delete or overwrite
cairomm-1.6.4 files, before the installation/removal was aborted.
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
