Perhaps you mean something like:
p0f-2.0.3|/usr/ports/net-mgmt/p0f|/usr/local|Passive OS fingerprinting
tool|/usr/ports/net-mgmt/p0f/pkg-descr|trevor at FreeBSD.org|net-mgmt|||http://www.stearns.org/p0f/
Which was written by William Stearns (if you read this bill, HI!), and
now maintained by Michal Zalewski (lcamtuf).
Try it ;-)
