I generally use both PKG_TMPDIR=/some/dir in the environment, and 
-t /some/dir/fooXXXXXX on the pkg_add command line.  If invoking pkg_add
through make rather than directly, the -t option can go in BIN_INSTALL_FLAGS.

If -t specifies a directory on the same dev as the final installation
location, the ultimate mv's will succeed by linking rather than copying,
saving time.
