- Update to 1.1

A bug in psearch 1.0 leads to the --or switch being completely broken.
psearch 1.1 fixes that. There are no other changes.

Add psearch.

psearch is an utility for searching the FreeBSD Ports Collection.

It allows you to use regular expressions, and has support for searching
the long description (pkg-descr files), as well as inverse matches that
allow filtering of ports.
