Force install function in PKGNG

My system always have had problems getting my HP cp1515n to work. But 
installing HPLIP from ports, then installing HPIJS with pkg_add -rf will 
get the correct PPDs to show up in CUPS.

  After swithcing to pkgng it does not seem to exist a force option so  
I have to do all my prints on another machine, which is slightly 
annoying. I have read man pages and googled but can not seem to find a 
force funtion. Does anybody know about one or have a better way of 
making the right PPDs install to get my printer going ? Having only 
HPLIP, or HPIJS installed does not make this possible.

Thanks in advance, Kenneth Hatteland
