Nope. You could do this if a package (.tgz extension), .tar.gz you must
unzip and untar in order to get a dir where you can install de program.

  |please help

Wait until the port to find the softwares. Or you can get all .tar.gz and
put then on /usr/ports/distfiles and repeat # make install clean

Sorry for so bad english.

See you,

  |as root, just use:
  |
  |pkg_add BitchX-1.0c19-FreeBSD4+Tcl1.5.tar.gz
  |
  |If this doesn't work, it is probably not a real FreeBSD package.
  |
  |I usually compile things from ports. You will find BitchX in
  |/usr/ports/irc/bitchx. If you want to try compiling it, do this (as
  |root):
  |
  |cd /usr/ports/irc/bitchx
  | make install distclean
