I'm looking for a better way to find some packages on pkgsrc database
based on some keywords. I don't think the two ways I know are the right
choice, or even a good way to do.

One way is to "make readme readme-all" in /usr/pkgsrc, open
/usr/pkgsrc/README-all.html on a browser and search a keyword in it.
Another way is to "make search key=package", but it takes a long time
extracting complete dependency database (a lot of dots).

I didn't find any references at

What's the right way to search packages?
