Quickly find out which ports contributed to a file tree

pkgs_which is a Perl script to efficiently determine, from a set of files and/or directories, which ports/packages have installed fiels here. It does not require a database and is useful to determine which ports need to be upgraded after, for instance, a script language interpreter has been updated and needs the site-packages reinstalled.

The port is self-contained in the ports tree. here are no external distribution sites or web pages.
