Its usage is quite simple, first update the package list cache:
# bsd-get update
Search for a package to install using a loose expression:
# bsd-get search screen
p5-Term-Screen-1.03p0.tgz
p5-Term-ScreenColor-1.09p0.tgz
screen-4.0.3p1-shm.tgz
screen-4.0.3p1-static.tgz
screen-4.0.3p1.tgz
xscreensaver-5.04-no_gle.tgz
Install a single package using a strict expression:
# bsd-get install screen-4.*p1.tgz
Going to install 1 packages:
 screen-4.0.3p1.tgz

Do you want to continue? (yes/no) [yes]:
/usr/sbin/pkg_add -r ftp://ftp.calyx.nl/pub/OpenBSD/4.3/packages/i386/screen-4.0.3p1.tgz
