For anything built recently, there is a subversion revision id in the
PSTAMP field of the pkginfo file.  For example, on a box here, I can

$ pkgparam CSWgit PSTAMP
bwalton at build8x-r2758-20090108031723

That gives you a who, what box, subversion id and a timestamp to work
with.  Older packages won't have this info, but anything new built
with GAR will.

Does that help?
