Just follow-up.  I was playing with pkg_tarup.  My solution
is something like this:

 1. Compile something, e.g. emacs, in pkgsrc and install it.
    All required packages are also installed automatically.
 2. Use "pkg_tarup_all emacs".  This make all .tgz files for
    emacs and all other packages that emacs requires.
 3. Copy all "/tmp/*.tgz" to target system.
 4. On target system, do "pkg_add *.tgz".  This checks
    relationships among tgz files and installs them in
    correct order.
