I tend to prefer

find /usr/ports -name 'pkg-plist' -exec grep -H kdict \{\} \;

That won't find it if it's in a port that uses a dynamic or
Makefile-swallowed plist, but I find it gets what I'm looking for 98% of
the time.  Now I'm sure someone will post a much more efficient method
using xargs or some such :)
