You cannot depend on pkg-plist existing, so you would have to both do
the grep, and also do make -V PLIST_FILES on every port Makefile.

So the quick answer is, there is no easy way to do this.

There had been talk at one point about someone building up a database
from the output of tinderbox runs but I think that's still theoretical
at this point.
