You can do it the way phk does 
Basically this is the tough part. Any port that adds a user will fail. 
It's easier to just mount the image, cp over the packages, and then 
upload it to your running device. You also could just add them to the 
/usr/obj/wherever and run the last few steps of nanobsd.sh too.
