I put my Kreskin memorial magic cap on and deduce that you ran this
command from root's home directory!

The shell expanded your wildcard before passing it to find, which saw
"find / -name AOInstall15.7.3_EP0_live_nointro.torrent".  Use what
albi at suggested: "cd /usr/ports/ ; make search key=bittorrent"

This will find ports with "bittorrent" in the package name or
description, which will match clients without torrent in their name
(Azureus for example).
