pkg_which works for installed ports...

If the port isn't installed, then try this:

[chris at amnesiac]~% echo /usr/ports/*/pkg-plist /usr/ports/*/Makefile |
xargs grep

Obviously we need to search the Makefile too because some ports use
PLIST_FILES instead of pkg-plist.

Unfortunately this doesn't work if the plist is dynamically created...
