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
