Starting from 2009Q1 (AFAIR) pkg_add updates packages inplace. This with
combination of DESTDIR support makes this procedure possible:
bmake USE_DESTDIR=yes package
pkg_add -u /usr/src/packages/pkg_install-[DATE].tgz
The same procedure works with bootstrap-mk-files and bmake packages.
And one more small related hint ... Note, that pkg_add rejects update
attempt to the same version already installed. I often screw up some of
my packages during development and would like to reinstall it from known
good package. Then this procedure works:
pkg_delete -f <package>
