This is a pretty common question to ask, so for myself, I made up a little
one-liner, to answer that question for me,  It does this:

find /usr/ports -type f -name pkg-plist -exec grep -iH $1 {} \;

that "$1" is the parameter you feed into this little script, it takes a
minute or two to search each and every pkg-plist file, and returns you the
filenames and contexes it found your search term in.  Works ok for me, and
there's some small things you might even to to optimize it for yourself.  I
leave the naming of this to you.

Note, those are curly brackets, NOT parentheses, and you mustn't forget
that trailing escaped semicolon.
