Just like the title says.

I tried to install a package "fs-uae" which I wasn't sure about the correct package name. `pkg install` or `pkg search` could not find any such package. I tried e-uae, uae, fs-uae-launcher but none gave me what I wanted. It turns out fs-uae was the correct name and that is has been marked broken. It would be nice if pkg could tell me about this. 

Cheers
