For installed package Z:
  $ pkg_info -Q MAINTAINER Z
  $ pkg_info -Q OWNER Z

The latter variable is rarely used, see docs/pkgsrc.txt for the difference.

If you have the package file but it is not installed yet:
  $ pkg_info -B ./Z.tgz | egrep '(OWNER|MAINTAINER)'

Otherwise you have to look at the Makefile for the package in a pkgsrc
  $ egrep '(OWNER|MAINTAINER)' /usr/pkgsrc/category/Z/Makefile

As an alternative you can use the fine web site to look for
the MAINTAINER/OWNER of a given package.
