Please use bottom or interleaved posting style and only quote as much as
is needed for others to follow you.

You use "pkg install -forge optim-1.5.0.tar.gz"
which is wrong. Either use "pkg install -forge optim"
or "pkg install optim-1.5.0.tar.gz"

To repeat: Only use the package name without version and .tar.gz when
using "-forge". If you want to install a downloaded package don't use
"-forge" but the full filename. Be sure to cd into the directory with
the package (ls should list it)
