How do I install software on OpenIndiana without internet

I operate computer networks in a private networked lab environment and we don't use the internet when connecting our servers together because something might go out to the schools network. I am wondering how I can install programs like Apache, isc-DHCP-server, Asterisk, BIND, etc. Without an internet connection. We don't have the time to create a private software repository server so I want to know if there is a way to install programs without an internet connection and a local software repository server.

OpenIndiana still support SVR4 packaging so if you have packages in that format for the software you are looking for, you can install them using the traditional pkgadd command.

Otherwise, I see no simpler way than compiling from source.

Can I download these packages and use them in a software repository server. I'm assuming that if you download only one package there will be a chance that the package will require dependencies in order to function properly. How do I download the dependencies (like figure out what the dependencies are). If not then I want to know how you install the gcc and gcc-c++ compiler because this seem to be a must for compiling any kind of software on a solaris-like operating system.
