It's not quite that simple, because setting PKG_PATH breaks pkgsrc
itself. The closest you could achieve is what I do, making an alias
for pkg_add (preferably not with the same name) that does 'env
PKG_PATH=foo'. So the environment variable is set only for that
process, and so won't affect pkgsrc or indeed anything else.

pkg_chk cheats by using a different environment variable (can also be
set in mk.conf) called PACKAGES. pkg_add does not do this.
