pkg-add for installing into a jail?

Thanks, Doug and Ben.
Yes, null-mounting and using absolute path in the pkg add command
helped. I found out that the packages directory can be arbitrary but
their paths must be the same on the host and on the jail.
Btw, I also use ezjail but I don't use ezjail-admin for updating ports
because it uses portsnap which, on its turn, pulls in the head (no other
option AFAIK). I prefer using a quarterly branch which I synchronize
with svn. Hence this hassle :)
