pkg_add behind proxy fails but ftp works


Im currently trying to make pkg_add work under NetBSD 4.0 behind a corporate
ftp_proxy is set and (in noninteractive mode) ftp works perfectly.. i.e: ftp works fine

now, pkg_add calls ftp (as far as I can see) in interactive mode, checking
the path before performing the download.. this (as stated in the ftp man
page) causes ftp not to use the ftp_proxy env variable, and from a tcpdump I
can see that the proxy is not contacted in any way by the ftp request..

is there a way to tell pkg_add to just go get the file without doing
anything else before?
