will only look in the name of the port.

I find this (tcsh) alias useful as it strips lots of the cruft:

(chdir /usr/ports; make search name=!:1 | egrep '^Port|^Info|^Path|^$')

The actual alias line is far more hideous to account for the quotes:

alias portname '(chdir /usr/ports; make search name=\!:1 | egrep 

and similar for portkey.
