Recent versions of pkg(8) (older than 1.4.12) contain a bug that could cause a
suppression of pkg itself during an upgrade or a package installation.
If this happened, you end up without pkg(8) on your system. Here is a simple
solution to fix that:
# cd /usr && make pkg-bootstrap
This will download and install the most recent version of pkg (1.4.12) which
contains a fix to this problem. You may want to check that this actually
worked by running:
% pkg -v
which should output '1.4.12' (or newer).
