You can use the PACKAGESITE variable to get pkg_add to go where you
want.  This next line can be done a whole  bunch of different ways, but
it's the most general, but I have crafted this for my own system, which
is a amd64, so it points there.  If you don't see this, and change this
to point to your own system's architecture, yu're on your own if you
mess things up:

/usr/sbin/pkg_add -f -r ${PKG_TARGET}
