For Bourne-style shell:
`pkg help 2>&1 | sed -nE 's,^  +(.*),\1,p'`

For csh-style shell:
`pkg help | & sed -nE 's,^     +(.*),\1,p'`

where the bit between ^ and + is a tab character.  You can type the
tab character on a command prompt by using Ctrl+V then tab, or just
type it normally in the script.

Hope that helps in the meantime.
