You probably can't.

FreeBSD 7 is long time EOL. It doesn't even have pkg. If I remember
correctly, the new pkg system appeared along FreeBSD 8, and became
standard around FreeBSD 9. Packages for FreeBSD 7 are no longer
being generated for current software.

The older pkg_ format and the new pkg format for precompiled packages
are not compatible. On a FreeBSD 7 system, you'd have to use the
program pkg_install to install packages. As long as they are in the
old format, this will still work.

It might be possible that you examine the package content, and then
manually extract them, so its content gets written to the correct
location. This however does _not_ deal with keeping the system's
records about installed packages (the package database) consistent
with the actually installed software! Again, note that those are
in different formats.

Is there a reason you cannot upgrade the system to a currently
supported version of FreeBSD, and use pkg as intended?

and them some stuff to do with ethernet ports and some potential future
software and hardware updates. These should be cool. Idk, Have fuN!

this will also help when debugging software like Bristol and drmsynth, but
yeah we can do this. also talk to moog music, pittsburghmodular synth,
behringer, and control4

yeah, anything else you want, just add it on there and figure out how to
hack it out! this will even help emulating electronic circuits for cloning
and for emulations on the computer and compiler optimization!
