 Finding where ports put files
Author: Dwight Tuinstra

To find where a port has installed its files, examine the "pkg-plist" (package packing list) file in the port's directory. You'll find a list of pathnames for all files the port installs (caveat: I believe this list is generated manually by the port maintainer; errors or omissions can occur). I find this useful to find the executables of those ports where the executable's name is different from the port's name (for example, wmaker/windowmaker).
