How to search for a specific port in FreeBSD

When you need to check if FreeBSD ports contain a specific software, one needs to either use "find /usr/ports" or make use of the "make" utility.

Searching for bash in FreeBSD ports:
Code:
# make -C /usr/ports/ search key=bash | grep -vE "B-deps|R-deps" | less
...
Port:   tuntun-0.4.0_3
Path:   /usr/ports/security/tuntun
Info:   A Gnome applet gui for OpenVPN
Maint:  anderson@cnpm.embrapa.br
WWW:    http://code.google.com/p/tuntun/

Port:   unssh-1.4
Path:   /usr/ports/security/unssh

Port:   bash-4.1.10

Port:   bash-completion-1.3,1

Maint:  adamw@FreeBSD.org

Port:   bash-static-4.1.10

Info:   The GNU Project's Bourne Again SHell
Maint:  obrien@FreeBSD.org
WWW:    http://cnswww.cns.cwru.edu/~chet/bash/bashtop.html
...


Using "make search key=bash" will search all packages that contain "bash" in their name, dependendant ports package (which is a lot).

In case you only want to see ports that have "bash" in their name, use "make search name=bash"
Code:
# make -C /usr/ports/ search name=bash
Port:   ru-fortune-bashorgru-20080903
Path:   /usr/ports/russian/fortune-bashorgru
Info:   Fortunes from bash.org.ru and freebsd.rusnet.org.ru/bash
Maint:   ports@FreeBSD.org
B-deps:   
R-deps:   
WWW:   http://bash.org.ru

Port:   bash-4.1.10
Path:   /usr/ports/shells/bash
Info:   The GNU Project's Bourne Again SHell
