Rebuild the pkgIndex.tcl files with

    make libraries-pkgindex

Not sure, why and how you got the problem, but i will try to 
trigger the rebuild of these files more eagerly... maybe a 
pkg_mkIndex failed in your version....

i guess, part of the problem is that "pkg_mkIndex" without 
the flag "-verbose" is completely silent also in cases where 
an "error" occurs (often a missing dummy "namespace 
declaration", just needed for building pkgIndex). If 
pkg_mkIndex is called with "-verbose", it is too verbose... 
I have now altered the behavior pkg_mkIndex in the build 
process, problems with while building pkgIndex will be easy 

Get a fresh version from git
