How to query the date a package was installed? I often manually remove
my packages based on time interval or time + package name after
finishing some task. It can involve pruning lots of deps for software
not yet in ports.

  $ find /var/db/pkg/ -name +DESC -exec \
    stat -f "%Sm %N" -t '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M' {} + \
    | sed 's|/+.*||; s|/.*/||' \
    | sort -r
    | less
