The "make search" target is useful for finding ports when you only have
a keyword or name to go on:

# cd /usr/ports/
# make search
The search target requires a keyword parameter or name parameter,
e.g.: "make search key=somekeyword"
or    "make search name=somekeyword"
# make name=fail2ban search
Port:   py26-fail2ban-0.8.4
Path:   /usr/ports/security/py-fail2ban
Info:   scans log files and bans IP that makes too many password failures.
