new installing tool: PKG

Since FreeBSD 10 there is no pkg_add or pkg_delete. Pkg is the Next Generation package management tool for FreeBSD. It is the replacement for the good old pkg_info/pkg_create/pkg_add tools.

using pkg:
pkg search firefox will display firefox search result from the repository
pkg install firefox will install firefox from a repo
pkg add ./firefox-34.1.txz will install a local package of firefox
pkg delete will delete firefox
pkg info -f firefox will show detailed info about the package
