Section 2.4.2 of Packages.txt. A note about not using "pkg_add <URI>" 
at that point would be good, but I still think that a note in the 
README saying "if you have changed LOCALBASE, don't use pkg_add 
<URI>" is needed to.

Another thought: can pkg_add be changed to not allow a user who has a 
different LOCALBASE to add by URI, or at least force them to do so 
with an additional command line option like "-d" for danger?
