You don't need to set up a webserver, necessarily.  If you're using
poudriere to build packages on the same machine where you want to
install them, then you can just use a file:// URL in your pkg.conf and
pkg will dtrt.  If you want to maintain a bunch of machines on a
network, then using a webserver to distribute the packages is probably
easiest overall, but you could NFS mount the repo and use a file:// URL
again, or you could use ssh:// to pull the packages down.
