I notice that /var/db/pkg/libmowgli-1.0.0/+CONTENTS
and similar files for a few other packages 
shows files which don't exist:

@name libmowgli-1.0.0
@comment ORIGIN:devel/libmowgli
@cwd /usr/local

I think this is a screwed up situation;
there are no libmowgli files in /usr/local/lib

What's the best way to recover from it if so?
