pkg(8) will search all the directories on REPOS_PATH, which by default is
/etc/pkg is for the "official" FreeBSD.conf that comes with the base
system. /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos is for general use.

No that's not needed. 'SHLIBS: yes' is the default now. Verb. Sap. if
you don't want to override any of the default values you can do without
a pkg.conf entirely. (pkg(8) complains about an empty pkg.conf at the
moment, which is a bug.)
