Sure, you could perform all the steps manually by yourself instead:

 * Set PKG_PATH to the repo and install the pkgin package.

 * Fetch the PGP key from and import

 * Configure pkgin and pkg_install.conf to use the repo, and configure
   pkg_install.conf with your preferred VERIFIED_INSTALLATION setting.

 * Install the mozilla-rootcerts package and run the install script.

The point of the bootstrap kit is to just do all this for you, but the
end result is the same, so choose the easy way or the harder way I
guess ;)
