Hmmm... the oldest files in the zfs where the abort trap occurred date
back to 2007.

However it does seem pkg(8) fills up /var/cache/pkg with files mostly
dated at the epoch, but with a few like this:

# ls -la /var/cache/pkg/p5-File-Remove-1.57-e824064549.txz
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  16628 Nov 26  -8917616

Quite why that perl module should date from 8 million years BCE I
couldn't say.  There's also one pkg apparently from the year 3605.
Hmmm... Of course, this is a bit irrelevant here as I'm not backing up
/var/cache/pkg to tarsnap.
