Thanks to Dave Miner, who suggested using the '-n' option to pkgadd.

This is one step closer to what I am after. The down side is that it
does not allow you to respond to any of its own installation
questions which I still need.
   'Do you want to install these conflicting files [y,n,?,q]'
   'Do you want to continue with the installation of <xxxxxx>[y,n,?]'
