Looks great! Thanks as always for the work. I do have one question (below).

There are two cases where I still define PACKAGESITE in the environment, 
specifically when building new jails or VM images. Can you suggest alternatives?

1. Installing/bootstrapping the latest pkg from a specific source. Often I 
build in an environment that is firewalled from the Internet at large but I 
have a local repo. (And it's nice to know exactly what version with which 
options I'm installing.)

2. Installing a package that includes a repo file for my local custom repo. 
This is a chicken-and-egg problem for which PACKAGESITE was a nice solution 
since there's no risk of a stale repo file being left behind--either the 
package is installed (with the correct/current repo file) or it isn't.
