Packages and dependencies...

I think I see what's going on here.
The "package-recursive" makes *.tgz packages IN the dependency
directories. But then, it seems that you need go back and copy those
over to <wherever> and ensure that those packages are installed first
before the primary port...
I was under the impression that "package-recursive" would create a
larger *.tgz file that included some of the dependencies.
How then does that installation (pkg_add or pkg_add -p /another/path)
work with this scenario - is there a recommended approach.
