Here you can find tips on how to tune your regex. You can use a regex
expression matching just the port name

port search --name --line --regex 'sed$’

This returns all the ports ending with *sed.

Notably, what are you looking for, I guess, is gsed, i.e. GNU sed.

-.     .´  |∞∞∞∞
  ',  ;    |∞∞∞∞∞∞
    ˜˜     |∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞ RdB
    ,.,    |∞∞∞∞∞∞
  .'   '.  |∞∞∞∞
-'       `’

How to do a post search by package name?

I tried

port search sed

and astonished to find out it has "gazillion" of hits, :)

BTW, can any confirm that sed is indeed not in macport pls?
