I think he is referring to:




..which are generated specifically for the www documentation and contain
all ports that apply to each window manager. These ports are also in
/usr/ports but are placed in their relative categories. They are not all
installed as part of the gnome or kde base systems.

You can run something like "make search key=gnome" or "make search
key=kde" in /usr/ports to get a list of ports used by gnome/kde.
You can replace gnome/kde with any keyword you like to be more specific
on your search.
