Delete them using the paths in the messages from pkg.

I.e. % rm /usr/local/bin/2to3-3.5
The cache directory is where the package source files are stored, deleting
the source package files will have essentially no effect. If you were to
re-install a package, and even if the current version was still the same,
the only effect will be that the package will be downloaded again rather
than being used from the cache.
