from 'man pkg_add'

  -f      Force installation to proceed even if prerequisite packages 
are not installed or the requirements script fails.  Although pkg_add 
will still try to find and auto-install missing prerequisite packages, a 
failure to find one will not be fatal.

this may help.  I don't have a lot of experience forcing packages, but 
it might get you somewhere
