Though this will not be the focus of my question.  Lots of ports are being created for FreeBSD and none submitted.  I don't know why.

My problem arises when trying to install one of these which is put together quite well.  pkg_add -r http://site/something.tbz, or pkg_add something.tbz doesn't work for the dependencies.  So how do I tell pkg_add to fetch the first pkg from one site and the rest from the main sites?  It is available in source but the system is void of pkg's at the moment and with the 1ghz processor and 512mb ram could take quite a while.  And the funny part is it will work perfectly if I just place it in ports/multimedia.
