What is done in the FreeBSD DVD is creatign a conf files manually:
local: {
	url: "http://where"

and env REPOS_DIR=/path/to/the/directory/containing/the/file pkg ...

same as above or if you already have pkg bootstrapped you can do pkg add http://...../yourpkg.txz
which makes me see that 1.3.0.a1 has lost pkg add|install http://... which we
need to fix for alpha2

Thanks for the first bug report. :)
