You can point pkg_add to the stable packages with the PACKAGESITE environment
variable (takes a complete URL), so it will fetch them when invoked with -r.
You can also point pkg_add to a mirrorsite of ftp.freebsd.org with either the
PACKAGESITE or the PACKAGEROOT environment variable, see the pkg_add manpage
for more information.
