42 files really :)
I think there is no the method except
for file in `ls /usr/local/rancid/bin`; do
    find /usr/ports -name pkg-plist -exec grep $file {} \;

There are a few conflicts as I can see.

I see. But it's not convinient to view man pages this way. May be the idea
about libexec dir is not so bad.
