Packages are self-contained, you should just be able to run

pkg_add package-1.00.tgz

and it should add it in.  The packages are in /packages on the CDROM or
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/packages/.

Ports, on the other hand, require the original distribution files which
are in ports/distfiles.
