From /usr/ports/:
Code:
# make search name=<name>
If you don't know the port name, try a keyword search:
Code:
# make search key=<keyword>
for information about an installed port, use
Code:
# pkg_info -x <name>

quicksearch is nicer to use than search.

Right, it gives nicer output. But it does not give all the information, that sniper007 is looking for.

I recall a few /ports/ which use DB backends and
provide port info. Waiting to set it/them up til
I see somewhere one-page pg8 setup somewhere,
too many newbie concerns (mutliple pg8 /ports/
to configure the DB for)
