Perhaps 'pkg search <package>' will work.
<package> will also match substrings. For example,
'pkg search groff' will match two packages:
groff-1.22.2_4 Software typesetting package
ja-groff-1.18.1_16 Japanese enhancement of GNU groff
and 'pkg search -o groff' will show the origin:
textproc/groff Software typesetting package
japanese/groff Japanese enhancement of GNU grof
See 'man pkg-search' for additional options.
