Ok, the command work, but perhaps there is still a
problem of pkgsrc.
If you install a package contained in
directory, and you need install a dependent package
directory, then installation of this second package
fails because pkg_add is in All directory.
It should work, from the pkg_add manual page:
Over time, as problems are found in packages, they will be moved from
the All subdirectory into the vulnerable subdirectory. If you want to
accept vulnerable packages by default (and know what you are doing), you
can add the vulnerable directory to your PKG_PATH like this:
(The quotes are needed because semicolon (`;') is a shell
meta-character.) If you do this, consider installing and using the
security/audit-packages package and running it after every pkg_add.
They use export but they have another shell so setenv should be correct
for you. Could you paste the error-message (or whatever) from when you
try to use pkg_add. A good way is to use script:
# script out.log
# pkg_add <whatever>
And all the text written to the console since you started script will be
in the file out.log, then attack that file to a mail.
