Thanks you for your reply, Kurt, but it doesn't seem that biber belongs
to any of the packages above.

The only file on my system that has something to do with biber is
biber.pdf, which belongs to texlive-docs:

% pkg which /usr/local/share/texmf-dist/doc/bibtex/biber/biber.pdf
/usr/local/share/texmf-dist/doc/bibtex/biber/biber.pdf was installed by package texlive-docs-20140525

If the documentation is present texlive-docs, does it mean that Biber is
missing from one of the texlive packages?

(The documentations says that Biber is provided by TeX distributions
such as TeXLive.)

Or should it get a port on its own?
