Thanks Rick. That got me started. I ended up copying the pkg tarball to
a temporary location to avoid the readonly pitfall. That let me get pkg
and all it's manpages installed. Once I had that I was able to proceed.
Pkg has s bit of a learning curve.

How can I bootstrap pkg from the package file that exists on my dvd?
I don't have network access.
I assumed I could simply execute:
# pkg bootstrap -f /cdrom/.../pkg-1.2.7.txz
But the bootstrapper tries to get the file off the network.
It does, indeed, try to get it off the network. Â /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf
is the culprit here.
Edit the repo config to use a local repo via file:///blah/ though you
may experience challenges getting it to work properly due to the ISO's
Not sure what your use case is, but for me, this was one of several
challenges I encountered that steered me to using a disk image
(customized mfsBSD) to perform automated, non-interactive network
