So I found what the issue is; I am installing packages which have
mdns-related dependencies. As a result pkg is removing the working 
mDNSResponder_nss package at the same time, to install net/howl which
doesn't have, or doesn't work with, nsswitch.conf.

The result is that there's no nss library available anymore to resolve
and therefore the error appears.

Simple, in the end.
