|pkg has a man page, but subcommands have their own man pages named
|a dash. So 'man pkg-info' shows that one. Another way to get there
|'pkg help info'.
That's the part I missed. Now looking at the pkg man page, I see
the pkg-info reference, plain as day, in the 'see also' section. :(
Thanks for the follow-up.
