creating package repository for offline installation

I would like to update the installed packages at home. There
are two problems:
1) there is only dialup internet connection. That pretty
much rules out the possibility of using 'pkg_add -r'
2) I want to use packages, because using ports will take
days and the systems are not that fast. So, I cannot
use 'make fetch-recursive'
I would like to create a package repository with the
packages of choice, burn these to one or two CDs,
take them home, and do the installation.
I guess I can install inside a jail the packages of choice,
are there any other options?
Thanks in advance, Nikos
