One way is:
echo 'devel/foo' > list
echo 'x11/bar' >> list
pkg_chk -C list -a

I suggest building binary packages first and installing those instead.
Make a sandbox with pkgtools/mksandbox (or manually), set up one of
the bulk build methods (I use pkgtools/pbulk) and do a limited bulk
build using "list" from above.
