Sorry, not on my NetBSD machine to provide uname output. Its NetBSD/i386 3.0. 
Could we add an option to pkg_add to save the downloaded binary package locally? This would be extremely useful while reinstalling the system or installing NetBSD on other machines by the user.  

OpenBSD's pkg_add has this option (see PKG_CACHE variable). And including PKG_CACHE in PKG_PATH should ensure this downloaded location is searched while installing through pkg_add.
