OK got some more input.

I've tried older `pkg` versions from the mastersite listed in =
/usr/ports/ports-mgt/pkg/Makefile :

http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.1.4.tar.xz
http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.2.0.b1.tar.xz
http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.2.0.b2.tar.xz
http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.2.0.rc1.tar.xz
http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.2.tar.xz
http://files.etoilebsd.net/pkg/pkg-1.2.1.tar.xz



Test results are as follows, every `pkg` was compiled from source:
1.0rc6: OK, creates repo.txz
1.1.4: OK, creates repo.txz + packagesite.txz + digests.txz
1.2.0b1: NOK, doesn't create repo.txz
1.2.0b2: NOK, doesn't create repo.txz
1.2.0rc1: NOK, doesn't create repo.txz
1.2.0: NOK, doesn't create repo.txz
1.2.1: NOK, doesn't create repo.txz



Since there are many 1.1.4 bugfix releases of `pkg`, I'll try getting my =
hands on each and test them in turn.

Obviously, something broke for me (and possibly others ?) somewhere =
between 1.1.4 and 1.2.0b1
