pkg_add is used to fetch a remote package and all of its dependencies. The
tar balls are extracted on the fly and no tarball is saved. (And if there
is a failure somewhere, you may have to fetch all over again :(

He wants it so the fetched package tarballs will be saved locally.

Still, pkg_tarup -d /where/ever \* will save every installed package.
I do this regularly after major package upgrades. If one wants to save
only the recent changes, one could save the output of pkg_info before
the installation, compare it with the same after the installation and
do pkg_tarup only on the difference.
