Ah. Not quite but thanks for telling me the location of the pkg
directory (btw, it's var/db/
I've now worked out how to get what I want via :
for i in *
MATCHES=`grep -c $i /usr/ports/INDEX-6`
if [ $MATCHES -gt 0 ]
#echo "Pattern $i Matched $MATCHES times"
echo "Pattern $i not matched"
In my case I was looking for files that weren't at the same revision
level as the ports tree but both options are accounted for.
