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
