I can think of two possible reasons:  You may have two different
versions of pkg_info on your machine; one from the old FBSD ports
system, and another in /usr/pkg/sbin from the new pkgsrc system.

Or, if you are using the new pkgsrc system, you should use 'bmake'
instead of 'make' for building *and* installing ports.  (You still
use 'make' for building the operating system, though.)

And 'bmake' must be in your $PATH, of course.  (I thinks it's in
/usr/pkg/bin IIRC.)
