pkgin in ruby fails with following error:

---Nov 12 10:43:33: installing libyaml-0.1.7...
---Nov 12 10:43:33: installing ruby24-base-2.4.2...
---Nov 12 10:43:37: installing ruby-2.4.2...
pkg_add: Package `ruby-2.4.2' conflicts with `pkg_alternatives-[0-9]*', and `pkg_alternatives-1.6' is installed.
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed

pkgin in ruby24 works and correctly installs symlink at /opt/pkg/bin/ruby. Regression of joyent/pkgsrc-legacy#302?

Yeh looks like it, sorry, will implement this properly so it doesn't get lost.
