RE: pkg_add question

Related question.

If I create a few packages like this and keep in a directory, then setting 
PKG_PATH to that location should work in automatically install the packages, 

Example, in the directory, there are pkg1.ver.tgz and pkg2.ver.tgz files. I 
have PKG_PATH set to that directory.
Then, doing 'pkg_add pkg1' should install from that directory right?

In my case, it is not happening. Or am I missing some metadata file? Thanks

Found the issue.
This is NetBSD 5.1
Looks like the '-s SIZEPKG' is also required for pkg_create If I do that, then 
I am getting no error.

Thanks for your help.

Can you put your package up somewhere?
