pkg_add -r and a local package repo

I've figured out how to point PACKAGESITE at a URL of my choosing.

First, it looks like pkg_add -r needs the full package name.  Is there
any way to give it "zsh" instead of "zsh-4.3.15"?

Second, it looks like it won't install dependencies.  This is a problem.
Can I get it to search and install dependencies somehow?
