Did you specify the -r flag?  Without that, the PACKAGESITE environment 
variable is note used.  From the ENVIRONMENT section of pkg_add(1):

 The environment variable PACKAGESITE specifies an alternate location for
 pkg_add to fetch from.  This variable subverts the automatic directory
 logic that pkg_add uses when the -r option is invoked.  Thus it should 
 be a complete URL to the remote package file(s).
