This is a known limitation of the portmaster / pkg combination.  Patches
welcome -- however, there is a significant hurdle in that portmaster
would have to rebuild its repository each time it added a package to it,
and that would make things horribly slow.

Most people find that the pkg+poudriere combination is sufficient on its
own, without needing to add portmaster to the mix.  If you need to add a
new package, add it to the list of packages for your poudriere instance
to build and then run a poudriere bulk to add it and any dependencies to
your repo.  You can then 'pkg install' it in the usual way.
