I also suggest to verify that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is *not* set. I had a case some time
ago preventing an installation where libxml2 was pulled in for pkgadd from some
other location breaking the addition with very strange error messages.

@Peter: May I suggest adding LD_LIBRARY_PATH as output to pkgutil -V?

Best regards
