I was hoping for some solution such that 

        add_pkg -p /tmp/foo mosml-2.01.tbz

would produce the message

        Please consult /tmp/foo/share/doc/mosml/README.FreeBSD before use.

whereas with the suggested solution I get

        Please consult /usr/local/share/doc/mosml/README.FreeBSD before use.

I suspect that the behaviour I was hoping for is simply not supported by
