If you know any other way instead of pkg_add, please let me know. – Eonil Oct 30 '10 at 19:45

You can't (yet).

If you look at you'll see that the FreeBSD Foundation has packages for FreeBSD 6 and 7, but not for 8.

There may be another way, or someone else may even have created packages, but if they have, I don't know about it.
