I not sure were pkg_add -r downloads the packages. I have couple recommendations:
1. buy a full box set or download all four installation cd images. 2. install sysutils/portupgrade. This will automate the download off all packages. You can install the binary version and its dependent packages with the following comand: # portinstall -PR kdelibs (read the man page for more details) All the packages will be downloaded to the /usr/ports/packages filesystem. The ports collection is a moving target constantly changing it would be easier to download all new packages or stick with the packages and port collection found on the RELEASE cdroms.
