By setting PACKAGESITE to one of the http mirrors (there aren't that many).
For example:
env PACKAGESITE=http://ftp2.de.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/packages/All/ 
pkg_add -r your_package-ver.si.on.tbz

To make this permanent, add PACKAGESITE variable to root's .profile 
and/or .login.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
