You need networking up and your DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf.

Try 'ping pkg.freebsd.org'. If that doesn't work, then fetching packages 
will certainly not work.

PACKAGESITE is an environment variable that pkg uses. You shouldn't need 
to change it unless you are trying to do something fancy.

Also, it appears that you were not running as root. You need to run root 
to install software.
