I don't know if its proper or not, but I ended up using a customize function 
like this:


  cust_install_packages () (
          PACKAGE_LIST=`ls ${CONF_ROOT}/packages/*`
          cd ${NANO_WORLDDIR}
          for p in ${PACKAGE_LIST}
                  cat ${p} | pkg_add -C . -

  customize_cmd 'cust_install_packages'

I then just stick whatever packages I want into the ${CONF_ROOT}/packages 
directory and they get added during the build process.

I hope that helps.
