Default pkg_add -r does not use exported packagesite

Without knowing if this is appropriate to do, my problem is:
I want to use a binary package in /packages-7-stable/Latest/ so I use
Code:
 export PACKAGESITE=ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-stable/Latest/
and try to use pkg_add -r . But then I get the error message
Code:
Error: FTP Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7.0-release/Latest/"the package": File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7.0-release/Latest/"the package"' by URL
("the package" is just the dummy name here in this post")
Why does it not search using PACKAGESITE?
