Default pkg_add --PREFIX ?

I just started using pkg_add but it default to storing everything in /usr/local and that been fine so far.

Now for certain programs I want them to be installed into a difference directory named /usr/local_1.

I read pkg_add (1) but the part about prefix is not sinking in and I have not yet found a single example in action anywhere while googing.

Is there a command that can easily do this, like ..

#: pkg_add - -install to -> /usr/local_1/ netbeans
If not, is there any other way to accomplish this task.

Thanks in advance
