You can simply do :

#=> port notes Inetutils
--->  inetutils has the following notes:
  All clients are now installed with the "g" prefix.

If you want to see which binaries a port has installed, you can do :
#=> port contents gsed | fgrep '/bin/'

Because there're differences between the BSD versions & the Linux versions.

(slightly off-topic)
Eg BDS sed can't handle newlines in substitute strings which Linux sed
(gsed) can :

Eg whsn I'm monitoring my postfix log, I'm doing this:

#=> cat ./showLog
tail -40f mail.log \
| gsed -E -e 's/((:|;|,|>)) /\1\n\t/g'

in order to get a more readable output
