It doesn't matter when you switch kernel or world.  You can just upgrade
or wipe out /usr/local + /var/db/pkg and start again followed by "pkg clean"

In the meantime, providing the output of "pkg -vv" may help.

The HowTo is slightly out of date as it doesn't handle pkg v1.2.x yet
(repo conf files exist and need to be installed).  I'm fairly sure
that's your issue, but you didn't respond to my previous mail on the topic.
