Unfortunately, it seems that pkg_add(1) does not make that as easy
as one might prefer.  I discovered recently that, even though I am
running 8.1-RELEASE (and not 8-STABLE), "pkg_add -r" fetches from,
rather than from the frozen-at-release -- and thus self-consistent
-- collection in .../All/

One way around this is to set PACKAGESITE to, for example,
(making any necessary adjustments to the mirror and release names).
