Sounds nice, but if package authors defined KEYWORDS related to their 
package then we could also use '-k'  as well as '-K' ala man, or is a 
pkg whatis.db not wanted ? Would it be to my trouble for the code in 
pkgsrc to maintain a whatis database based on the KEYWORDS defined in 
a packages Makefile ? I imagine running make whatis after each pkgsrc 
sup might be a pain and very slow.
