  You cannot create a package tar ball without installing the package
first.  However, you can set LOCALBASE to something other than your
usual installation location (/usr/pkg, by default).  This should at
least work for non-X11 packages.  For X11 packages you'd have to change
X11BASE, but for this to work, you probably need a full X11 installation
there first.
