Try turning PARALLEL_JOBS to 1 in poudriere.conf and then rebuilding all
This sounds very similar to a behaviour I was witnessing with non-pkgng
repos constructed by Poudriere, whereby the INDEX was ending up
incomplete, and so the dependencies were never installed by pkg_add -r.
I would imagine a similar race condition could be affecting pkgng as
well. I just haven't had time to troubleshoot it very far, and the above
seemed to alleviate the issue.
