 In a nutshell (and yes that this isn't documented is a major flaw):
 tnn@c3k6:bmake> uname -a
 HP-UX c3k6 B.11.11 U 9000/785 2005683377 unlimited-user license
 tnn@c3k6:bmake> pwd
 tnn@c3k6:bmake> /usr/pkg/bin/bmake USE_DESTDIR=full package
 ===> Installing dependencies for bmake-20080215nb1
 ===> Building binary package for bmake-20080215nb1
 => Creating binary package /tmp/packages/All/bmake-20080215nb1.tgz
 tnn@c3k6:bmake> pkg_delete -ff bmake
 tnn@c3k6:bmake> pkg_add /tmp/packages/All/bmake-20080215nb1.tgz
