I realized that this was probably the case only after I sent the email, but this keeps me from having to test so thanks.
I do think the documentation leads one to think differently about what PACKAGESITE does; perhaps I'll try to submit a clarification. As I read it, it talks about "subverting the logic" of the fetches, which led me to think the expected hierarchy would be subverted- something like that.

> In plain English:pkg_add -r goes to the correct domain and path (per environment variable I set) to fetch the package I want to install, but when it goes to get the dependencies for the package it just correctly fetched, it subsequently fetches to the wrong path (goes to /All instead of /FBSD), though it does fetch to the correct domain.

pkg_add(1) expects the PACKAGESITE to follow the same hierarchy as a
tinderbox. Without a tinderbox, you can 'mkdir /usr/ports/packages'
on your local build server. When you 'make package' (or your
preferred choice) the packages will be put in /usr/ports/packages with
the correct hierarchy, symlinks to PACKAGESITE/All/ etc.
