I found my answer. It's called setting LOCALBASE=/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg
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!
