   In the port directory of the program you are installing, the file
pkg-plist contains a list of the installed files. The executable is
usually going to be the file installed in /usr/local/bin, or

   You can also use pkg_info to find what was installed and where it was

   pkg_info -L PACKAGENAME

   Here is a link you may find helpful as well:
