$ pkg_info
dnetc-2.9008.491_1,1 Distributed.net distributed computing project client
gettext-0.14.1      GNU gettext package
gmake-3.80_2        GNU version of 'make' utility
libiconv-1.9.2_1    A character set conversion library
libtool-1.5.10_1    Generic shared library support script (version 1.5)
