[You chose the wrong list -- in NetBSD terminology (unlike FreeBSD),
 "port" refers to support for given *hardware platform*, not a software
 package. One of tech-pkg or netbsd-help mailing lists would be
 appropriate. Thus I'm moving this from netbsd-ports to tech-pkg.]

I'd guess you need to put PKG_LANG=portuguese into your /etc/mk.conf.

Yes, it is. But you really want to set a make variable to affect Pkgsrc
(some make variable happen to live in the environment, too, but generally
/etc/mk.conf is a better place for them).
