You're running a quite old version (7.4/amd64), but that's
not a problem. You need to change the root for fetching the
packages to a different path, i. e.

See "man pkg_add" for details - PACKAGEROOT has to be set
to the mentioned path. There are no 7.4-release packages
on the FTP server, but the 7-stable packages should work.

You could also use ftp to manually fetch the packages and
then install them without the -r flag; note that this case
does not involve any dependency resolution!

If possible, you may consider updating your system to a
newer version, 8.3 or 9.0 if it fits your requirements.
