  # pkg_info -F -e /usr/pkg/share/mplayer/codecs.conf

The tricky parts are

1) It doesn't use natural getopt() parsing, so the the "-F" has to
come before the "-e". It's probably a bug. Of course, it works fine
without "-e".

2) You must use supply full paths. It's simply searching a database
that has the full path as index. You can see everything that's in the
database with `pkg_admin dump'.
