the entry for pkg_info -F says:
     -F      Interpret any pkg-name given as filename, and translate it to a
                 package name using the package database.  This can be used to
                         query information on a per-file basis, e.g. in 
conjunction with
                         the -e flag to find out which package a file belongs 
Everything beyond the first sentence is extraneous and always leads to me 
trying "pkg_info -eF /path/to/filename" which doesn't work. Just delete the 
second sentence as it makes no sense.
