Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, "port list" doesn't seem
to tell me what I want to know.
% port list dbus
dbus @1.2.12 devel/dbus
I want to find out that I have dbus @1.2.12_4 (active), and @1.2.12_5
(present but inactive). "Port list" doesn't appear to tell me that.
Am I overlooking something?
