	Thank you. This put me on the right track. When I used
the full name of the dependency, the command did not work with
the complaint that it could not find the package so I did a
pkg_info and looked for any reference to pkg-config. It turns
out that if one chops off the _1 at the end, it did recover
another package as in
pkg-config-0.23.tbz which appeared in /uar/ports/dns/bind97. I
copied it to the same directory as the other tar balls so
pkg_add should find it also now.
