Sorry for th late reply, I didn't see this thread earlier.
You can look at the ctime of the +DESC files. That should
be the time when the packages were installed. This command
will list all packages in the order they were installed:
ls -lcrt /var/db/pkg/*/+DESC

(On the statement print "42 monkeys" + "1 snake":) By the way,
both perl and Python get this wrong. Perl gives 43 and Python
gives "42 monkeys1 snake", when the answer is clearly "41 monkeys
and 1 fat snake". -- Jim Fulton
