I found my answer.  It's called setting LOCALBASE=/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg 
in /etc/mk.conf.

Now I have a much bigger issue with things now.  I don't have the 
base package tools that come with NetBSD, pkg_add, pkg_admin, etc. 
since they didn't get installed with the Darwin bootstrap process. 
How can I install these on to Mac OS X?

OS X - UNIX for the rest of us
NetBSD - Catch the Power!
